Arsenal may have had their dreams shattered by Karim Benzema's pledge to Real Madrid, but Arsene Wenger has switched his attention to another world class striker in the form of Uruguayan Edinson Cavani. 

The Mirror are reporting that Arsenal will make a last ditch attempt to sign Cavani before the transfer window shuts next Tuesday, with long time admirers Manchester United also interested. 

The 28 year old has no current plans to leave Paris Saint Germain, where his goalscoring record is an impressive 56 in 65, but with both clubs in need of a striker Wenger and Van Gaal are expected to pay big money for the right man, which could be enough to sway his current club.
