How do you react to one of your rivals losing their star player in a transfer window? What would be your reaction if the same team loses two best players in two successive summers? Whatever it may be, the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has no sympathy at all.
Arsenal famously made a 40 million plus 1 bid for Luis Suarez the year before he moved from Liverpool to Barcelona, which ultimately was the catalyst for us to buy Alexis Sanchez from the Spanish giants.

Many Arsenal fans have long held the belief that some clubs are `more equal than others´ in the words of George Orwell.

Arsene Wenger famously made a concerted effort to bring Luis Suarez to Arsenal 18 months ago, although the strange rumours about the Gunners offering Liverpool 40m plus 1 pound sounded extremely far-fetched at the time but is now taken as true. The Telegraph is claiming that Wenger tried again to sign Suarez in the summer, and that he is still keen to bring him to the Emirates.
Newsflash! Arsenal need a defensive midfielder, or at the very least, a central midfielder to add cover and competition at the heart of the Gunners squad. But the million dollar question is whether Arsene Wenger really agrees, or which players he thinks will do the job.
