Arsenal launches new £35m bid in attempt to steal Luis Suarez from Liverpool
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is preparing to launch a new and improved £35 million bid in order to sign in the coveted Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. It appears as if the deal for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has come to a halt as Arsenal are now solely concentrating on winning the services of the Uruguayan international.
Arsene Wenger first placed a £30 million bid for Luis Suarez, but Liverpool immediately rejected it claiming they would sell the Uruguayan international for no less than £40 million.
On the other hand, the Gonzalo Higuain transfer saga has apparently hit a bump on the road that brought down all progress the Arsenal and Real Madrid had achieved during the past two months.
According to reports, Gonzalo Higuain has agreed to the terms of his deal with Arsenal, but the English and the Spanish club continue to fight over a small amount of transfer fees. Real Madrid are demanding £25 million for the Argentine striker. On the other hand, Arsenal have refused to pay more than £23 million for the young forward.
Apparently, Monday will provide more information on this transfer saga. Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger might be forced by fans and media to spend big this summer once again. The French boss needs to put together a strong team since after years Arsenal have their best shot at the Premier League title.
Arsene Wenger insists the need for a “healthy” and well-balanced team is of utmost importance. The boss of the North London club also talked about Arsenal transfer policy.
“If you look closely, it looks to me that there are very high transfers now,” Arsene Wenger told the Guardian.
“There is a dual speed now. A very high level or no level at all. That's a big, worrying truth. Until now [this summer] you had £40 million, £50 million, £60 million [fees] or nothing at all. It's been under £10 million or around the big numbers. I don't think that's very healthy.”
