Ever since the transfer saga about Luis Suarez coming to Arsenal a few years ago, when Liverpool got all huffy and then pretty rude about our pursuit of their Uruguayan striker, who made it pretty clear that he actually wanted to come and play for the Gunners, I have been hoping for a chance to get one over on them.
I know some Arsenal fans felt that it was the fault of Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board for making that offer of just one pound over what they thought was the value of his release clause but if it really was a clause then why offer more?
The way the Anfield club acted at the time was very high and mighty and as if they would never ever do anything dodgy in their own transfer dealings. That seems to be their way, calling Raheem Sterling a money grabber while systematically raiding other clubs like Southampton of their young talent, but this summer they got caught out.
Liverpool were warned about the tapping up of the Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk and they seem to have really upset the south coast club to the point that Jurgen Klopp seems to have accepted he will not get the defender this summer, but I bet the Saints would deal with Arsenal and let us sign the centre back who seems keen to move and has been training on his own.
Do you guys think that Wenger should at least try to sign Van Dijk, getting a top quality player and some revenge on the scousers at the same time?
