Arsene Wenger has admitted that Arsenal have little chance of signing Edinson Cavani from Napoli this month.
The Frenchman revealed yesterday that he likes the Uruguayan international, but he’s cooled talk of an arrival.
“Napoli are playing for the title and the Champions League in Italy,” the Arsenal manager commented on Friday.
“What is Napoli's interest in selling Cavani? None, unless you say we will pay twice the price of what the player is worth…
“On top of that, all the players who can strengthen us are cup-tied in the Champions League.”
The striker has a release clause in his contract which would free him for any club, although that fee is set at a massive €63m.
