It’s funny how Arsenal can manage to suffer a ‘blow’ over a player we were never actually interested in.

Edinson Cavani has reportedly signed a new deal with PSG worth £6.25m a season, £1.25m in add-ons, according to Sky Italia. Arsenal are said to face disappointment, you know, since we were really into the idea of signing him and all.

When the first couple of vague links began to emerge that we wanted the striker should the Jamie Vardy deal not come through, we explained how there was no substance to the claims and that there was no way we were interested. Therefore, there’s no ‘blow’ for us to face but the tabloids are clearly bored. Transfer activity has slowed right down during the Euros and they need material.

Silly Season is only bound to get sillier so I doubt this is the last we’ll see of stories of this type – or this story in general – this summer.
