Duo emerge on Arsenal’s Suarez alternatives list

MichuArsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have endured a frustrating summer as reported transfer target have failed to arrive at the Emirates Stadium.

News emerging this morning indicates that the Gunners are now set to miss out on transfer target number one – Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.

Swansea City’s sensational striker Michu appears to have come onto the radar as Wenger seeks to buy a focal point for the team and the Spainard, who had an outstanding season with the Welsh side netting 22 times in all competitions following his bargain £2.2 million arrival last summer, could be available for around £20 million this summer.

While Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko also remains another option with the Citizens willing to sell the former Wolfsburg man at the right price following their spending spree in attack.

Arsenal have already lost out on Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli while other reported target Stevan Jovetic joined City and now they face the disappointment of yet another failed transfer pursuit.
