Spurs fans were delighted to hear that the club have been linked with a move for PSG forward Edinson Cavani in this month’s transfer window.
According to the Independent, the Uruguayan forward has been mentioned as a potential target for the North London club, as they look to bring in a replacement striker following the hamstring injury suffered by Harry Kane. The PSG forward has struggled for game-time this season; making just four league starts for the French side, often playing second fiddle to the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi.
Cavani’s goal record with the Ligue 1 side is extremely impressive, with the 32-year-old having scored 198 goals in 293 appearances for Les Parisiens in his time with the club. Currently valued at £22.5 million, the Uruguayan international may well be available at a cut-price considering his lack of appearances this season and he would bring a wealth of experience to Jose Mourinho’s side.
Would Cavani be a good signing for Spurs?

Levy ain’t paying him a fortune so more likely to never happen but this would be a good move

These Spurs fans would clearly welcome a move for Cavani in this month’s window and will be hoping that the club makes an approach for the experienced striker.
What do we think?
Although Cavani has struggled for game time this season, his goal record with PSG and Napoli speaks for itself and he could be the ideal short-term replacement for Kane and could even partner the England striker when he returns from injury.
