Whole Arsenal camp is buzzing after signing Mezut Ozil on the deadline day for a club record 50 million Euros. But Ozil was not a primary target for Arsenal during the window. For the whole first half of the window, Arsenal locked horns with Liverpool in their pursuit for their striker Luiz Suarez. But the move collapsed as Liverpool were adamant not to sell their star to their rival club.
Now According to the Mirror, Arsenal board gave permission to Wenger for another marquee signing in the January transfer window and it is believed that they will go back for Suarez again.
With the addition of Ozil, Arsenal probably have the best midfield in the league, but they still lack a spark in their attack. They miss someone like RVP who can link with the midfielders and also score a match winning goal out of nothing. Luis Suarez fits the bill exactly and if the move materialize, it would definitely make Arsenal much stronger both in the league and in Europe.
In Liverpool’s point of you, they would try their best not to sell Suarez (at least not to Arsenal). They had a perfect start to the season with 3 wins in a row including a well fought victory against the champions. But will they keep up their good form and stay in top four when the season ends? If their form dip by winter, Suarez may again want to abandon the anfield ship to play for a team with Champions league exposure.
Interesting weeks ahead for the both the teams anyway.
