We know now that Luis Suarez is at least interested in moving to Arsenal. I won’t go into the whole situation as I’m sure everybody will know by now. Here’s a quick line to explain : Arsenal have now upped the offer to £40 million and £1 to talk to Suarez but the bid was once again rejected.
Suarez has begun talking to Arsenal to agree personal terms, which is good because now we know that he really is interested in a move to our club. I am still quite surprised that Arsenal have even made bid over £40M. It’s like Christmas has come early and I now have faith that this spending will continue.
Liverpool are playing hardball over Suarez which is a problem. If only we had been so cautious about letting our best player leave last season instead of accepting the first measly bid that came in for him, we could have had another £40M.
I’m unsure of what will happen now in this situation as I cant see Arsenal matching the likes of Monaco and PSG to spend over £50M on a striker. Suarez is just as good as Edinson Cavani and Radamel Falcao so he is definitely worth it, I just find it hard to believe that Arsenal can match that sort of money.
We need to pin our hopes on Suarez handing in a transfer request so he can persuade Liverpool to let him leave for what we have already offered. An unhappy Suarez for them would be bad. I’m sure they won’t keep him as long as they did Torres for fear of the past repeating itself.
Arsenal fans, no matter how much you don’t like Suarez it’s time to show him some love and convince him that this is the right club for him and his goals next season. We have Champions League football and we can seriously compete for titles with him in the team.
