The Telegraph is reporting that Arsenal may go back in for Suarez with one final record breaking bid of £49 million. It will absolutely shatter Arsenal’s transfer record and finally put an end to this summer’s terrible transfer business at the Emirates, if it is accepted of course.
This report comes just one day after it was claimed by journalists in Uruguay that Suarez has told them that he was going to stay at Liverpool for the sake of the club’s fans who he does not want to let down. Amazingly he apparently also said that he may agree a new contract with the club and put an end to the saga that has dragged on for well over a month.
If we are going to go back in with a final bid then we had better do it fast. The Premier League is only two days away from starting and we have nothing new to add to our squad. We were supposed to be close to sealing the transfer of Bayern Munich midfielder Luiz Gustavo which is a step in the right direction but sealing the transfer of Suarez will lift the club just in time for the new league season.
I hope Suarez is not considering signing a new contract up north as we really need a marquee signing this summer. Not only that but he can guarantee regular goals and can be just as important to us as Robin Van Persie and Thierry Henry were in their time at the club.
If we still have that £70M to spend that we were promised at the start of the summer, a £50M signing of Suarez and then Luiz Gustavo could mean that is all of our business for the summer. Two players are better than none though and I hope to see them both in an Arsenal shirt by next week.
