Gunners failed to land Uruguay attacker this summer.
Arsenal are prepared to back head coach Arsene Wenger in the January transfer market as the north London club continue their long-running search to bring a world-class front man to the Emirates, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The Gunners tried to sign unsettled Liverpool striker Luis Suarez this summer, only to fail to convince the Uruguay international’s employers, Liverpool, to part company with their star man in the close-season transfer window.
Wenger saw two bids for the 26-year-old rejected out of hand by the Merseyside giants, the second of which worth £40m plus £1, which they believed was enough to trigger a release clause in Suarez’s current contract at Anfield.
However, it turned out that Arsenal had been given the wrong information, with the Reds refusing to allow the forward to make the move south.
However, it is understood that Wenger still plans to monitor Suarez’s situation on Merseyside between now and when the transfer window reopens again at the turn of the year to ascertain whether or not Liverpool may be prepared to offload the Uruguayan next year.
And if the Frenchman is given any encouragement on this front, then it is believed that he will return with a big-money offer for Suarez as Arsenal still have the finances available after only landing Mesut Ozil this summer from Real Madrid for a club-record fee of £42.4m.
