Bad News For Arsenal Fans As Chelsea Enters Suarez Race After Losing Out On Rooney

Arsenal are set to battle Chelsea for Liverpool’s controversial striker Luis Suarez. After missing out on Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain, the Gunners have identified Suarez as their primary target as they look to bolster their front line.

Chelsea’s number one summer focus has been to land Wayne Rooney but that is looking increasingly unlikely and Jose Mourinho is prepared to switch his attention to the Uruguayan.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has repeatedly stated Suarez would not be sold, swiftly rejecting a £30 million bid from Arsenal. The Gunners then bid £40 million plus £1 in the knowledge that it would activate a release clause forcing Liverpool to accept the bid, however it did not. Rodgers went on to claim that only a bid of £55 million or more would be enough to secure the attackers services, which has so far halted Arsenal’s progress.

Chelsea, backed by Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, would have no qualms about offering £55 million for Suarez having shelled out £29 million for Andre Shurrle and Marco Van Ginkel already this summer. The club is no stranger to large transfer fees with Fernando Torres, Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and David Luiz costing over £130 million.

Suarez’s main desire to leave Anfield is to play Champions League football, an offer both Arsenal and Chelsea can give but his preference still remains with Real Madrid and reports from Spain suggest they will enter the bidding in the coming week as the transfer saga starts to hot up.

  1. Oh well we won’t get Suarez now Chelski have come in for him. Its all down to money. Wenger should have paid what Higuain was worth and lost out and we will defo lose out again. Wenger must be savked or resign. Our beloved gunners are going down rather than forward.
