Having successfully seen long term target Jovetic sign for Man City, Higuain to Napoli, Arsenal’s rumour milss have stuck to Luis Suarez off late. Ofcourse the situation is a little weird for the Gunners as quite frankly no one would have imagined that Suarez would turn out to be an Arsenal target. So after two failed bids (including a weird£40,000,001 million bid) it is alleged that Arsenal are going in far a thrid bid. While they continue to do that, let’s see three possible alternatives for the Gunners if they fail to bag Suarez.
This 28-year old Valencia striker has been one of the talented strikers in the La Liga. He netted 57 goals in the last two seasons for the Spanish club. Moreover, he has been linked continuously with a move away from the club. So, Gunners can have a close look at him. Soldado can give Giroud a tough competition and eventually this will become a beneficial factor for the Gunners. Though Arsenal will face tough competitions from other club, with Spurs leading the charge followed by Liverpool. But a substantial bid and the prospect of Champions League can turn the things for Emirates side.
This 27 year old England striker is keen to move away from Old Trafford. After the inclusion of Van Persie last season, Rooney has been pushed to a supporting role rather than his usual centre forward position. Seemingly frustrated with his role at the United, the charismatic and prolific forward, who although is not at the prime of his career, can become the masterpiece of the Gunners. Moreover Rooney’s inclusion would make a statement and the fan’s morale would get a boost.
Here is another Spanish sensation, Michu who set the field on fire with his distinguished performance last season. He scored 22 goals for Swansea last season. It was his first season in the Premier League. His versatility would add certain dimensions on Arsenal upfront. He is fitted for either of the central striker or in a withdrawn role. Although this would be a bargain deal for Wenger, but we are a bit sceptical about the supporter’s reaction.
