Do Arsenal Lack Bite?

It has been confirmed this morning that Arsenal have had a renewed bid of £40 million rejected from Liverpool for Luis Suarez, it is also reported that a further bid is expected in the next few days. there have been a few conflicting reports recently regarding the release clause in Suarez’s contract. The fact is that the clause in his contract merely states that any bid over £40 million is made clear to Suarez although the club does not have to accept it. 


I can not see Liverpool selling him to a rival Premier league club as they do not have to, It would be more sensible for the club to stop wasting time on this deal and look elsewhere. There are several players that would be available for that kind of money or even less, so Wenger should give up on Suarez and move on to the next.


I am still astounded No-one has managed to capture Robert Lewandowski from Dortmund this summer…. yet. It had originally been thought that he was Bayern bound but he recently quashed those rumours and did not want to go. But for around £30 million you would think Dortmund would find that bid very hard to resist. 


You would also have to ask were Arsenal ever that interested in Gonzalo Higuain or Wayne Rooney both would be available for a similar kind of price but no firm bids seem to have been made. 


While we are on the topic of “bids” being made. There are conflicting reports claiming there has been no bid for Bernard. It was reported earlier this week via ESPN Brazil that a deal for the Brazilian starlet had been reached with Atletico Miniero and he would have his medical on Friday after their final game of the season. This could mean one of two things. the deal has fallen flat on its face a bit like Paul Gascoigne on a regular night out. Or which is quite likely Atletico Miniero have requested Arsenal to keep the deal tight lipped.


Finally, this nonsense of still not having a recognised and reliably fit Defensive Midfielder on our books. You would think this would be priority number one this summer as the club had been heavily exposed last season due to a lack of options in this position. Any team that has serious title aspirations can surely not be relying on Mikel Arteta in there for yet another season, He was originally signed as a temporary measure for this position and surprise surprise nothing else has happened. It would appear Fellaini to Arsenal is dead in the water. Luis Gustavo is continuing to be linked with a move to the Emirates. With money according to Gazidis being “No Problem” why not make an audacious bid for one of the best midfielders in European football, Juventus’s Arturo Vidal. The Chilean Midfielder would be available for around £35 million only Real Madrid have shown interest this summer without making any offer for him. 



Feedback always welcome.
