Arsenal Will Not Try And Sign Liverpool Forward Luis Suarez This Summer, Confirms Arsene Wenger

The two clubs clash in the league at Anfield on Saturday lunch-time. 

Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger has claimed that he has absolutely no regrets whatsoever about failing to land prolific Liverpool front man Luis Suarez last summer, while the Frenchman has also confirmed that the Gunners will not be trying to sign the Uruguay attacker again at the end of the season either, according to reports in the Daily Star.

The north London club made a much-publicised and concerted effort to lure Suarez away from Anfield during last summer’s transfer window.

However, Wenger and Co failed in their bid, with the club’s last offer of £40m plus £1 not being sufficient enough to trigger the release clause in the forward’s contract with the Merseyside giants.

And asked whether he had any regrets about missing out on the Premier League’s top scorer, Wenger replied: “No… Because sometimes you have regrets when you had a player who played for you and scores or does well somewhere else.

“But he was never our player.

“It’s just a situation that didn’t come off and that’s it.”

Meanwhile, quizzed about whether he would make another bid for Suarez this summer, Wenger was adamant he would not, saying: “No, no. I don’t, no.”
