Tottenham Hotspur Message Board
The rumours of Arsenal putting in a bid of 30 million for Suarez came as a shock for most of us and to be honest we probably all thought it was a joke, and still may be.
We are aware that Real Madrid are looking at him and should they buy him they would probably look to let Higuain leave without to much fuss.
Is it possible that Wenger has only just got the ball rolling with a view to getting his target "Higuain" or does he really think he could pick up Suarez for less then £40 million? which is really unlikely!
There is also good news or should I say rumours of Arsen being interested in Abate, if this is true he has my vote
He is a quality full back with skill!
The other big headline is the moveback of Cesc which probably wont happen this season if at all.
Lets see what game time he gets this year now Neymar has joined Barca, it could be a different story next season but not this time.
He's used the press as an excuse to get out of Liverpool.
If he went to Arsenal and had another great season he would be touting himself again for Real Madrid or Barca, it's just in his nature!
That's assuming he doesn't go to RM this year.
He's a flawed genius that has put a lot of top clubs off by his attitude and behaviour!
He has upset the Liverpool fans so far, he might as well go the whole way and join Utd...lol
If and it's a big IF we were to sign Higuain I would expect at least a 4 year deal for the most expensive player the club would have ever bought!
The rumour is that RM are still trying to push for more money whilst Arsenal are holding out for the orginal agreed fee.
Even if we have to pay the £25 million qouted it would still represent good business for a player of his ability and also age!
If you believe the papers you will believe any thing!
We are on the brink of buying Higuain and if that does go through we have a top striker.
Rumours are flying around about Rooney and Fellaini but the latest #$%$ is we are putting in offers for Suarez or possibly Jovetic, now Juve are backing out!
Whilst I don't believe any of them will be joining Arsenal, if it was a straight decision on who should join Higuain up front, Suarez or Jovetic I would be torn between the two.
Suarez has PL experience and is a class act but has so, so much baggage and would worry me with his attitude.
Jovetic is also a top player and not so much the goal scorer like Suarez but thats what Higuain is being bought for so a false number 9 role is where I see Jovetic.
Who would we benefit from most, that's assuming it was a possibilty?
I think I would have to go for Suarez despite the grief he would bring the club, but he would bring goals too and goals win games.
To be honest if we sign Higuain and a quality midfielder plus Keeper and defender I would be happy, anything else would be a bonus!
I didn't realise Wenger had come out and said who he wanted to buy which has lead to speculation.
As for valuation of Higuain, Fellaini and whoever else, we all know that very few teams pay the actual asking price and Wenger will look for a deal everytime.
To be honest it doesn't matter if Wenger pays 50 Million for 1 player or 50 million for 3 players, just as long as they are the right players.
All our best players have came reasonably cheap so for me its whether Wenger still has the ability to find quality cheaply or has he got the ability to spend big on the right players.
This season will tell one way or another!
Recently the only talk I have heard is the ongoing saga of Higuain and Fellaini joining the ranks at the Emirates.
Surely this can't just be it, we obviously need a keeper and another defender, just in case!
Mignolet has now gone to Liverpool which raises the Reina issue and the early reports of various fullbacks and CBs have wilted.
The latest report is that Negredo wants out so will Arsen be sniffing, who knows, but the only re-occurring names are the top two.
If Arsen does pull off the Higuian deal and Fellaini or someone of that ability comes in too, then things will be moving in the right direction, we would still need a bit more quality but at least a change in policy would be shown and a light at the end of the tunnel.
The garbage about Rooney to Arsenal has now changed direction and Barca are in the frame, but assuming Arsen did make enquiries about Rooney and Negredo, who would suit Arsenal best?
Under paying wages has been the root of so many problems.
If the club are truly looking to compete again then we have no alternative but to pay comparable salaries.
Let's be honest, if we don't pay it someone else will and then you loose out on a very good player.
I guess the real question is, do Arsenal think they can get a better player for £23m and £100k a week and if so, who?
It's not over until the fat Italian lady sings.
It looks like Juve are still in the running despite the payment plan they proposed.
Being a Gooner you should know by now that nothing ever goes smoothly.
One thing is for sure if we do pick up Higuain and also Fellaini Arsenal will have more of a cutting edge about them and also more steel that we all agree is missing sometimes.
Lets not include Rooney as this will never happen!
It will be 2 big signings at most with some usual newbies with potential, leopards don't change their spots, especially over night!!!
Lets all dream and pretend that Wenger actually buys Higuain, Rooney and Fellaini.
Now that 1st 11 would scare the pants off most teams.................
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz I must be dreaming!
Despite the Russian saying how much he likes Rooney I can't see Arsen buying both but if he did, what kind of message would that send out to other clubs and most of all, us fans!
