Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says the club may look to different transfer targets if their pursuit of Liverpool ace Luis Suarez falls through.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says that the Gunners are ready to look at alternative targets should their pursuit of Liverpool forward Luis Suarez end up fruitless.
The north London outfit have found themselves at the forefront of a very public transfer saga, with both Liverpool and Suarez airing plenty of dirty laundry in the media, and Arsenal players and manager have found it hard to avoid mentioning the Uruguayan thanks to a bombardment of questions on the potential signing.
Liverpool are refusing to do business and have seemingly have burned bridges with Suarez. Head coach Brendan Rodgers is forcing the 26 year-old to train on his own, as giving newspaper interviews about wanting to leave Liverpool is not the Liverpool Way.
Still, Wenger appears frustrated with the chase of Suarez, and the transfer window in general – but promised fans the Gunners were looking to strengthen significantly this summer.
“We try and get what we want; if that doesn’t work we will look somewhere else,” said Arsene Wenger in an interview with Al Jazeera Sport, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“The clubs with talented players don’t want to lose them.
“Some clubs acted very early so the choices were reduced and there is more competition coming from France with Paris St Germain, who buy big players for huge amounts of money, so it’s tough, difficult and slow.
“I can assure the fans we will try very hard to keep them happy. We are certainly ready to spend the money, but the process is going slowly, but surely.”
