Emirates Stadium side look to bring in new additions within the next week to ten days.
Having thus far failed to spend a single penny on summer additions Arsene Wenger is ready to step up efforts to bring in a trio of talents to significantly boost his Arsenal squad.
CaughtOffside understands that the Gunners boss has been encouraged to spend by the club’s board who have handed Wenger a large transfer fund with which to lure new signings to the Emirates Stadium and have accepted his request to increase the club’s wage ceiling to further aid the push to secure big name players this month.
Having failed with two previous bids for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez Arsene Wenger is ready to make a third and final offer for the 26 year old Uruguayan.
Such is the Arsenal boss’s determination to bring in the lethal Premier League striker that he is willing to break the British transfer record to land the forward. Though Arsenal are of course not well known for ‘splashing the cash’ Wenger is willing to offer £51m for Suarez, a fee that Liverpool will struggle to turn down given the situation they find themselves in.
Suarez is pretty much burning all his bridges at Anfield and it’s hard to imagine the former Ajax man ever playing for the club following accusations he has leveled at Liverpool regarding promises he feels he has been made in relation to a summer exit.
Arsene Wenger doesn’t have many striking options of note in his Arsenal squad, indeed given the fact that the Arsenal manager likes to play Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott in wide roles he can really only turn to Olivier Giroud to lead the line at present and after managing a decidedly average total of 11 goals from 34 Premier League appearances last season it’s fair to say that a more prolific marksman is needed, hence the continued push to sign Luis Suarez.
Arsenal are believed to have already agreed a five year deal with Suarez, said to be worth £150k a week, during talks the club underwent with the Liverpool man after their £40m plus £1 bid triggered the clause that allowed talks between the Gunners and the player to take place.
Luis Suarez scored 30 goals in all competitions last term and will miss the first six matches of the new campaign, the remaining portion of the ten match ban he received for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
