With 19 days remaining in the transfer window, we have only acquired Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer from Auxerre. Although Sanogo has great potential, we need world class players to compete in the European circuit and also in the EPL. These days, we are being linked with Suarez and Gustavo. In my opinion, the signing of these two players would make such a huge difference for us.
Firstly, Suarez would be an absolutely immense. However, we do not know what is going on because the Liverpool players are saying that he will stay and an Arsenal player(Damian Martinez) said that the whole squad are expecting Suarez. If we did manage to pull this deal off, it would be amazing. Luis Suarez has one trait that Arsenal currently lack. He is a game changer. There were a couple of games last season were we really lacked a game changer. For example, Chelsea away & Norwich away. If we had a player like Suarez in those games then I feel we could have got something out of those games. Therefore, the signing of Suarez would not only give us that game changer that we desperately need but also improve Giroud because I feel that OG didn’t perform at his best last season due to the lack of threat to his starting spot.
Finally, Luiz Gustavo. In my opinion, Luiz Gustavo would be an absolutely fantastic signing for us. Gustavo is an absolutely solid CDM whilst possessing that Brazilian flair. He is fantastic on the ball, a great tackler and also a massive threat going forward. He has an extremely accurate long shot, scoring three out of four long shots that he took last season for FC Bayern. Also, this would be the perfect time to sign Gustavo because he needs to prove that he should start for Brazil at next year’s world cup therefore he would be at his absolute best this season. Gustavo lies very deep which would give Ramsey and Wilshere the freedom to push forward. Gustavo is the rock that we currently lack in our side.
In my opinion, the signings of Luis Suarez and Luiz Gustavo would make us title contenders. I think that we should pay 50m for Suarez and 17m for Gustavo which would mean we spend 67m. These two signings would take Arsenal to the next level.
