Arsenal has no regrets about missing out on signing Liverpool superstar

When asked about Arsenal‘s failed attempt to sign Luis Suarez from Liverpool, Arsene Wenger has insisted he has no regrets about missing out on the hitman.

The Gunners coach will come face to face with the striker he was desperate to sign later this week when the north London heavyweights to toe to toe with Barcelona in the Champions League.

The Catalan giants will be overwhelming heavyweights to advance past the Premier League title contenders, particularly due to their world-class attacking trident of Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar, which is already being talked about as one of the greatest in history.

Wenger attempted to move for Suarez during the latter’s time at Liverpool, infamously offering £40 million and £1 for the South American hitman in order to meet his buyout clause and snare him from Anfield [The Guardian].

They ploy ultimately didn’t work, as Suarez opted to reject a switch to Arsenal, who are arguably still waiting for a genuine world-class striker who can fire them to the title.

“Not now,” Wenger responded, when asked whether he had any regrets about missing out on Suarez. “It happened to me before but not now,” replied Wenger, as per the Mirror. “He’s a player there and we have to keep him quiet on Tuesday night.

“We have to analyse what we do and do it well and together. Individually all their players are difficult to stop. We have to find a way to do it collectively.”
