Our recent results have been, quite simply, a joke, and now reports seem to be taking the Mickey by suggesting Arsene Wenger WILL break the bank with a £30 million bid to sign Edinson Cavani. Really?

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal’s chief scout Steve Rowley travelled to Italy last Thursday to watch the 25-year-old, where he netted all four goals in Napoli’s 4-2 win over Dnipro in the Europa League, and The Gunners were linked with a move for the striker in the past.

Now I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t believe for one second this will ensue, for two reasons:

1. Arsene Wenger and the board will never ever spend this amount of money on one single player, no matter how talented he is.

2. Why in the hell would Cavani want to join a struggling Arsenal side? Especially if other top European clubs are tracking the Uruguayan.

Undoubtedly, we are in need of top class striker. No matter what you may think, we simply haven’t replaced Robin van Persie. Olivier Giroud has done well and I like the fella, but I don’t think we can rely on him to net all the time for us.

I would love to see Cavani at Arsenal, but unless pigs grow wings and start flying, we won’t be seeing him at The Emirates anytime soon.
