As we approach the holiday period those of us who follow football are well aware that the transfer window and the opportunity to bring in players is just around the corner.

For Arsenal fans the 4-1 away win to Galatasaray took away the bad taste in the mouth they had after the loss to Stoke City at the weekend, and even though the Gunners are through to the last 16 of the Champions League it is back to business as normal when Newcastle United come to town on a high following last weekend’s win over Chelsea.

Should Arsenal fail to win on Saturday the booing will be heard around the Emirates just as it was at the railway station in Stoke, as fans once more start to question Wenger and his decisions?

Some will argue that Arsenal does not need another striker just look at the two goals Podolski scored against the Turks, and he is now regarded as a back-up player, plus we already have Olivier Giroud, Danny Welbeck, Yaya Sanogo, Joel Campbell and Alexis Sanchez plus the Ox and Walcott who fancy themselves as want to be strikers, so why would Arsenal need to sign Cavani for what would be a considerable sum.

The answer for me is simple as not only would Arsenal be getting one of the best strikers in the world they would be showing everyone else that the club was determined to become as big as Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Manchester United, never mind the money teams like Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris Saint Germain.

Cavani is undoubtedly one of the best finishers out there and is deadly in front of goal not to mention how his movement up front would open up opportunities for other players, and would especially benefit the likes of Mesut Özil if Wenger allowed him to play behind Cavani we would get to see the Özil of Real Madrid and not the one that Wenger has played out of position for the Gunners.

Before joining PSG from Napoli the Uruguayan scored 29 league goals for the Partenopei during the 2012/2013 season and despite having to play second fiddle to Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the Parc des Princes has already scored 12 goals this season the same as Alexis Sanchez.

Looking at the current Arsenal side it just makes sense to buy a striker of Cavani’s talent, and at 27-years-old he has a good few years left to help take Arsenal to the Premiership title that every Gooner longs for.
