With the January transfer window now officially open, Arsenal supporters are hoping Arsene Wenger can manage something he has so often failed to do in the past – and complete a deal with a bit of time to spare.
The Arsenal boss has been guilty of leaving deals too late and often missing out altogether in recent times – something he simply cannot afford to do this time around given the mounting pressure he is facing.
Reports suggest Arsenal are set to move for Atletico Madrid’s defensive midfielder Mario Suarez this winter with the Gunners desperate for a midfield enforcer.
Wenger has been linked with a host of defensive midfielders since the summer, with Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira and Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin two of the names most frequently mentioned.
But now it looks as if the Gunners boss has set his sights on Suarez and whilst this may be Mario rather than Luis, it appears Arsenal have a chance of actually completing this deal – without having to offer an extra £1 to activate any kind of release clause.
