Wenger Wants Suarez Deal Done This Week, Fellaini Also Linked Again

By on July 28, 2013

Arsene Wenger wants to have Luis Suarez on board before the end of the week so he can be paraded at the Emirates Cup and he’s also considering a move for Marouane Fellaini again, according to reports today.

After seeing two bids rejected already, the latest one being for £40,000,001 which Arsenal felt was enough to activate this mysterious ‘clause’, the Mirror claim we’re set to go back in with an improved offer of £42.5m with the boss believed to be desperate to get the deal done in time for Suarez to attend next weekends Emirates Cup.

I very-much doubt that’s going to happen if our next bid is £42.5m. Liverpool are highly unlikely to accept that figure, so if the boss wants Suarez in this week, we better put in at least £45m plus add ons.

Suarez wants to leave Liverpool but Real Madrid continue to be a real threat, so we need to get this deal sealed while the Spaniard’s are concentrating their efforts on Gareth Bale.

The newspaper also links us with Marouane Fellaini again, claiming that Wenger is keen to bring in a powerful presence to his midfield this summer and is considering activating the Belgian’s £23m release clause.

I’m torn on Fellaini to be honest. He’d be an excellent addition but I’m not convinced the 25-year-old would be the ideal defensive midfielder we need. Someone like Luiz Gustavo from Bayern Munich would be a better bet but as long as we bring in a ‘proper’ defensive midfielder this summer, I’ll be happy.

Do you think we’ll sign Suarez in the end? What are your thoughts about Fellaini?

    Those two signings will be a great addition for this season in order for us to challenge for title once again.

    Getting desperate are we dears, the company not the club Arsenal have no intentions of spending their well usurped spondoolies to appease the real supporters, you heard it from Monsieur Wenger himself ” We already have the players necessary to win the league, as john henry said “what are they smoking at the Emirates” someone as been passing it to Wenger and in my opinion he’s been hogging it.Why refuse to pay Van Persie a wage rise, then this Suarez scenario, it doesn’t add up. PR stunt and another season without a trophy and more excuses in January. And without sounding like an alarmist the others are strengthening all around you, champions league ha ha ha

      James you are right. If it sound’s like Mr Bean, looks like Mr Bean, acts like Mr Bean, it is Mr Bean. Arsene Wenger is Mr.Bean. Wenger has no idea of what he is doing.

      James you need help, Couldn’t even read your crap, RVP was given 150 per week and he said he wanted to leave, same as what is given to Suarez, besides arsenal had made more profits compared to last year. You need help

    Fellaini is a great player but unnecessary The DM we need, who co-incidentally can play CB, is the 6’2″ Etienne Capoue. Top notch player. Assertive dominant, very Pat Viera/Roy Keane. At under 10 million way within our budget. Not long ago Arsenal bid for him. Arsene buy the guy. He is only 24 and has 6 good years at the top ahead of him. He is made to measure for our needs.

      Why do you think it is that obvious? Yet Arsene Wenger doesn’t act upon it. Time and again we the fans act like scouts/managers/coaches and pinpoint our squad weaknesses. It appears professionally the BOss doesn’t share our opinions… Forget the money, it is the philosophy of Arsene Wenger that keeps us Trophyless! We are close to the next step (Championship level) and he knows it believes it. I can bet he blames injuries and unlucky situations, that is why he reluctant to spend unless painfully obvious needs (in his head). He brought in Arteta/Cazorla because he needed them, he had no choice…. He will sign anyone of known quality, if there is 50% competition from other clubs…. He wants to be unique and prove everyone wrong. He formula simply mustn’t be disturbed.. Legend, Winner, greatest Arsenal Manager but a BLOODY Stubborn MAD Professor!

    striker, midfielder, winger, defender who can play as an defensive midfield and a goal keeper is what AFC need. All with champions league experience at some stage or AFC have NO CHANCE

    There is no point going back to LFC with 42 million odd , they won’t listen till its above £50 million, so why is the board and wenger wasting our time ?
    Get real with a proper bid! Or is it all a con ?does wenger really want him? if so get him!

      Well said,
      Deliberately wasting time, with no real intent to sign a word class player.
      I’m not been funny but I would have been happy
      With mignolet 12mil, wanyama 12mil and
      higuain 32mil.

        I presume you mean world and not “word” class player. Along with not being funny as opposed to “not been funny”.

    I dont blame Wenger but blame Arsenal fan in England for giving Wenger the opportunity to fool every .body. If wenger refuse to sign top class players then let him go with his greedy life style.

  22. Jettoe

    July 29, 2013 at 6:47 am

    I’m not bothered anymore, because being worried doesn’t change wenger stands. The man does what suits him when and not what fans think. I’ve a strong conviction that Suarez is a possibility and a DM, the name I dont know. Two players on his mind.

  23. jibola

    July 29, 2013 at 6:49 am

    Will need to buy suarez in time, just paid 45m for him. And will need defender

    At this point in time all i want is for wenger to just sign any player that would help the course, because since we started calling for world class sign it has become more difficult to get one, maybe if we had left him alone by now he would have his typical type of players. All am saying is wenger pls bring them in either world class or wenger type simple

    WOW, just got here as an Everton fan due to the Fellaini link and man, you guys are deluded!! The comments on this page are an embarrassment. Foreigners blaming UK based Arsenal fans (it an English club isn’t it), support a club in your own country if you don’t like it. He only needs 4 players etc. The type of players you guys are going on about, 4 at that, will cost you in excess of 100m!! Suarez may be quality but your asking for trouble, do you honestly think Arsene will be able to control him?? Hes a disgrace and the quicker he is away from the prem the better. Steer clear Gooners and don’t let him drag your name through mud too.

      Well said.

      What a sad state of affairs when we have to wait for an Everton fan to come on here before we get a sensible comment.

      Looks past the players ability, and look at Suarez, the horrible racist thug. If he was a dog he would have been put down by now!

      I don’t want him at my club even if he came with a 100% guarantee that we would win the PL and CL next season. I would rather not qualify for the CL without him. Maybe that is a weakness in my character, because I can see that there are things more important than football in life.

      People need to remember that before last season this guy needed five clear cut chances to score one goal. If he stays at Liverpool and we do not sign a striker Giroud will out score him this year.
