Tottenham Hotspur fans have reacted to a report claiming that the club have been offered the chance to do a deal to sign Edinson Cavani from PSG.
Spurs have been offered the chance to bring the striker into the club in the January transfer window, per The Independent.
The big fat Tottenham quiz of 2019 – how much do you remember about the last year at Spurs?
Manager Jose Mourinho is said to be keen to sign two forwards this month to cover for the injury sustained by Harry Kane.
The England captain, of course, is out until April at least and Mourinho recently floated the possibility of him not playing again this season.
And a number of supporters believe that a move for Cavani is something of a no-brainer.

Why would we not take a world class striker on a free loan 🤷♂️

If PSG are offering Cavani and he’s open to the move,surely a deal could be done to satisfy everyone.

Now that would be an exciting loan to take up Kane’s position

However, some other fans doubt the possibility of securing the Uruguay international this month.
The 32-year-old, of course, is ageing but he remains an important member of the PSG squad, scoring five goals in 14 appearances in all competitions.
His current contract, however, does expire at the end of the season.
He’s on a gazillion pound a week! Never ever ever gonna happen

Never a chance

Yeah but it’s like offering a Ferrari to someone who’s only got enough of a budget to afford a cheap run around 😕 Fingers crossed though 🤞🏼

Would love to get him but his wages are too high!

Would be nice, but my Spurs head tells me it’s unlikely.
More likely to get Soldado back on loan 😂

We’re offered Cavani – in return, Levy will offer Wanyama 🙄

Cavani has struggled with injuries this season and has missed a total of nine games in Ligue 1; PSG remain top of the league, however, five points clear of second-placed Marseille.
Meanwhile, Spurs fans have reacted to reports of a potentially huge swap deal.
