With just Yaya Sanogo as their only completed signing so far, Arsenal have been looking all over the place to try and bring another player to The Emirates Stadium.
Rather than going for another youngster, Arsene Wenger is looking to make a big-name signing and Luis Suarez could be the player who is about to steal all the headlines.
Arsenal have reportedly placed a £35m bid in for the controversial Uruguayan striker which has forced Liverpool to open talks about a possible move in the future.
Hardly shy from the public spotlight, Suarez has expressed his desire to move on and compete for European trophies in the future which has raised interest in the striker from clubs across Europe including from clubs such as Arsenal,Chelsea and Real Madrid.
The Gunners had made a £25m bid a few weeks ago but this was rejected by Liverpool who didn’t think that it matched their valuation of the player.
Alongside that, Suarez is considered to be a key player at Anfield who ended up as the second top goalscorer in the Premier League last season scoring 23 goals in 33 games.
With no other player coming close to that in The Reds squad, Liverpool have been keen to hold on to the Uruguayan in a bid to try and get back into the Champions League after failing to finish in the top 4 for the previous 4 seasons.
It’s this failure that has prompted Suarez to seek a move away from Liverpool and indeed England in his search to compete for trophies on a regular basis.
Apart from Arsenal, Suarez’s most likely destination should he leave Anfield is to Madrid where Real have been thought to have been preparing a bid for the striker.
Real are thought to be looking to match or exceed any bid made by rivals as they try to capture Suarez as a replacement for the likes of Gonzalo Higuain or Angel Di Maria who have both been linked with a move away for the Bernabeu.
In fact, Higuain has been heavily reported with a link to Arsenal for nearly a month now but it’s rumoured that negotiations between Arsenal and Real Madrid have stalled putting the entire move in jeopardy.
With the transfer window now properly underway, both fans and players at the Emirates are urging senior figures at the club to sign some big players soon or face another season of frustration as the struggle to compete with their big-spending rivals in a search for trophies.
