The Sunday Mirror is reporting today that Liverpool are preparing to sell Luis Suarez in January and that Arsenal are almost certain to come in with an improved £50million bid for the striker.
The report suggests, “The 26-year-old has confided in friends that he remains determined to quit the Reds and join a club that will challenge for major honours. Ideally, he wants move to a Champions League club and as well as being one of world football’s greatest marksmen he will also not be cup tied from playing in Europe this season.”
“Arsenal will almost certainly return to lodge a bid which could reach the £50m mark, but it’s understood that Suarez will reject a move to The Emirates if Spanish giants Real Madrid enter the race to sign him.”
Having missed out on signing Suarez in the summer, it will not harm Arsenal to try bid again as he is a quality player who would take Arsenal to another level. Can you imagine Ozil linking up with Suarez? That would be something for every team in Europe to fear.
I know there are some fans who do not believe we need Suarez at Arsenal but in my opinion, he would be a class addition to the side especially since we are in need of another striker. Giroud can not do it all by himself and he needs support and Suarez is the perfect player to give him that.
As for the £50million price tag, we have been told that Arsenal have money to spend in the market and I hope all of it did not finish on Ozil. Suarez for £50million is a good bit of business as he is world class and arguably in the top five players in the world. It is big name signings like this that we need to be making at Arsenal again.
Liverpool are going to struggle to hold onto Suarez especially as they can not offer him any Champions League football and that is what the striker is craving for. The fact that Suarez will not be cup tied for European Football come January also makes him a very attractive proposition.
