We're not buying Cavani. We don't need him. We've got enough in the attack. Giroud/Sanchez/Theo/Sanogo is a solid four to go to. Podolski in a pinch.
i don't think we are either, but as for need...we didn't *need* özil last year. we had enough attacking mids. we didn't *need* sanchez this year, we had enough attackers. i think if he's available at a fee we can comfortably pay and a wage bill that isn't outrageous, we should get him. giroud is good. sanogo is good in the sense that the chaos he creates stimulates our attack. cavani is great. much better than either and in this lineup, a sure 30+ goal scorer (like he showed himself to be at napoli.
and i know cavani wouldn't be mutually exclusive from getting a CB. definitely means we'd be limited to one more foreign signing (due to home grown rules), but it wouldn't end our business. we'd sell poldi which would cut a high earner and bring in probably 10-15m.
what we need is world class talent, really at anywhere on the pitch other than no. 10 and b2b mf. said it on the transfer thread and i'll say it here, if cavani means no DM (which seems to be the case with or without cavani actually), i can live with our CM situation until next summer.
