Report: Spurs To Target Luis Suarez When Gareth Bale Moves To Real Madrid

By on July 31, 2013

With Arsenal fans waiting in hope rather than expectation to hear of any developments on our pursuit of Luis Suarez, the Daily Mail are reporting that we might have surprise competition for his signature from our north London rivals, Tottenham.

We’ve hit something of a stalemate with Liverpool over Suarez. We bid the unusual amount of £40,000,001 last week after being led to believe that would trigger an automatic release clause in the players contract. It turns out Suarez’s advisers got it wrong, so we’re now weighing-up our next move.

The Anfield club are said to be demanding upward of £50m for the striker – a figure Arsenal appear unlikely to match – but it seems we might have some competition for his signature from an unlikely source.

The Mail claim that once Monkey-Boy seals his dream switch to Real Madrid for a ridiculously unjustified world record fee, then Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will show the clubs ambition in the transfer market by making a move for Suarez! You just can’t make it up. Well, the Mail have probably done just that.

Suarez to Tottenham is one of the most unlikely transfer rumours of the summer. The whole reason he wants out of Anfield is to play in the Champions League and he’ll have more chance of qualifying with Liverpool next season than he would with a Bale-less Tottenham side.

I’ve no doubt Levy and Spurs would want Suarez. He’s a world class striker. But you can bet your mortgage that the Uruguayan would never agree to a move to White Hart Lane this summer.

Will he end up at the Emirates though? It’s still difficult to say. If he wants Champions League football enough, he’ll probably get his way but Liverpool are going to make it extremely difficult for us. We are their biggest competition for a top-four place so it makes no sense them selling to us. I don’t see Wenger paying the £50m+ it will take to persuade them, so unless Suarez submits a formal transfer request, I feel a deal is unlikely. But let’s wait and see how things progress….

    Suarez to Spurs? This is a story with real teeth, giving Spurs that extra bite up front with Suarez and Defoe both having past history of on pitch hunger pangs.

      I would love to see Suarez and dzeko bought
      Bale sales would be wise if Bale is ready to move
      Sell adebayo Dawson huddlestone
      Buy 2 young outstanding back up defenders
      Avoid injuries and get guaranteed 3rd place

    I’m an LFC supporter, and I think the only team less likely than Arsenal (for Liverpool to sell Suarez to) is Tottenham. The reason Suarez is not putting up a stink to move to AFC is because he realisea it’s not much of a step up – if any – and his Champions League campaign will in all likelihood be short lives. Why would he choose go to Totenham who are not in the CL and are odds on to finish below Liverpool without Bale. The most nonsensical story of the year this one.
