According to The Mirror, PSG and Uruguay star Edinson Cavani came close to joining Arsenal this summer.
Arsenal were heavily linked with the Uraguayan striker during the summer, but were believed to be put off by his £50 million price tag.
Arsene Wenger could be tempted to add to his squad in January, after Danny Welbecks injury highlighted the lack of depth in his ranks, particularly in the forward department.
Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud are currently battling for a first team place, as Wenger operates a system with 1 striker, but neither have set the world alight early on this season. It's a big opportunity for either striker to grasp and stake a claim for a first team place, but should they struggle for form, then they could move for Cavani again.
