Arsene Wenger has further fuelled the speculation linking Arsenal with a January swoop for Edinson Cavani after revealing his admiration for the Uruguayan forward.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has been heavily linked with a move to the north London club in recent weeks amid reports that he is unsettled at the Ligue 1 outfit.

I like this player a lot, I like his spirit a lot

Arsene Wenger

Now, Arsenal boss Wenger has conceded that he is a keen admirer of the 28-year-old, who is reportedly frustrated at being played out wide for the French club.

Wenger is quoted as having told French television station TF1: “I like this player a lot, I like his spirit a lot, but I feel like he is playing with his hand on the brakes.

“I have the impression that he is not expressing himself entirely.”

Cavani, who has also been linked with a transfer to Chelsea in recent months, has scored 28 goals in 48 games for Paris Saint-Germain since his move from Napoli in 2013.
