According to media reports Wesley Sniejder is willing to take a pay cut  in order to make a move to the Premier League while Arsene Wneger has admitted to his interest in Edison Cavani

Arsene Wenger has not given up on Edison Cavani


Having secured Theo Walcott’s signature on a 3 and half year contract worth 100,000 Pounds per week, Arsenal are now Gunning for Napoli striker Edinson Cavani.

Cavani, having scored 16 goals this season , is valued at 30 million pounds. Wenger, although admitted of his interest in the striker, looked unsure about Arsenal’s prospects of being able to afford Cavani’s transfer fee.

Wenger Said – “Cavani is a player that I like. Will he cost a lot of money? That’s for sure. Nobody would deny that. Look, our banker lives just next to me and he is ready if we find the right player.”

Arsenal have failed to replace Robin van Persie after the striker moved to Manchester United. Van Persie’s tremendous form at Man United and Arsenal’s poor exploits in the league so far have only added to the yearning of another prolific striker among the Arsenal faithful.

Napoli are unlikely to release Cavani in the January window and most certainly, not without the right price. Going by Arsenal’s transfer policy, Cavani does fit the bill, for his age and capability. However, 30 Million pounds looks out of Arsenal’s reach, going by previous precedence.

Sneijder linked with Man United And Liverpool

Sneijder does not meet FSG’s transfer policy at Liverpool. His 6.5 million pound (after taxes) annual contract at Inter makes him expensive, at the age of 28. However, it is understood that the player is willing to take a pay cut, in order to move to England.

Although Sneijder’s services might cost Liverpool a dear, the fact is that the team is in a desperate need of a player who could add creativity in the final third. Liverpool have improved over the season, but the team still looks short of ideas in and around the opponents’ box. Having released Nuri Sahin to Dortmund, there is certainly space for another midfielder.

If Sneijder could be convinced to take a substantial pay cut (around 40-50 %), for 10 million euros, at the age of 28, he is still a value proposition for the Reds. It looks highly unlikely for Man United to sign him primarily for his age and also for the fact that they have Kagawa on the roster.
