Arsenal transfer delayed until Liverpool part with their man

Alexis SanchezArsenal fans are looking worried here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Express claim their deal for Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez is being held up.

Now before our punters blame manager Arsene Wenger for dragging his feet, our landlord notes that it is not the Gunners or indeed Sanchez who are the issue.

It is the deal between Barcelona and Liverpool for Luis Suarez, with the Catalan giants unwilling to allow Sanchez to leave before a deal for the Reds star is finalised.

Sanchez has made it very clear that he wants to join Arsenal and the 25-year-old will cost Wenger around £30 million.

However, according to the majority of the punters in the tavern, that is money well spent and something that will be vital to any title challenge that Wenger and his boys make next season.

Liverpool and Barcelona are looking to finalise the deal for Suarez and with Barcelona determined to land the Uruguayan forward this summer in order to regain the La Liga title, we think Arsenal fans might get their man pretty soon!

Arsenal fans. Do you think this deal will now fall through or will Wenger manage to pull it off even if the Suarez to Barcelona deal goes south? Let us know your thoughts below.
