With all of the rumours surrounding Gonzalo Higuain, Arsenal have pretty much stunned me by offering Liverpool £30 million for wantaway striker Luis Suarez which was instantly rejected.
This brings up a few questions:
- Are Arsenal “trying” to buy Suarez because the Higuain deal is dead?
- Are we putting in a fake bid for Suarez so Real Madrid won’t ask for more money?
- Has Arsene (and this is hugely unlikely I know) got the idea that he needs two world class strikers?
- Or, and this is probably the most likely – Are Arsenal completely useless when trying to buy top players and they’re trying to get these players less than their market value?
If Arsenal are putting in a bid of £30 million for a player, they clearly do have a warchest at their disposal. So this could mean that we were genuinely interested in players such as Wayne Rooney, Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez, but the fact is we’re penny-pinchers and don’t want to pay the money that is required.
Essentially, it’s been so long since we’ve bought a top player that we’re trying to get them “on the cheap”.
As Arsenal fans grow increasingly frustrated with TLTDTEW, this latest rejected bid won’t do much to help the situation. With an already rejected bid for Lars Bender, it seems as if Arsenal are being made into a laughing stock in the transfer market.
