Wenger admits interest in Suarez, other targets
At his pre-Emirates Cup press conference, Arsene Wenger was pressed on the possibility of Arsenal signing Luis Suarez.
The Gunners have been linked with the Liverpool striker for the past few weeks, but the Arsenal manager wouldn’t be drawn on his plans for the Uruguayan.
He made the point that the transfer window runs until August 31st (in fact this summer it’s extended into September), and there’s plenty of time to sign players, but said, “I don’t want to talk specifically about Luis Suarez, because that is between Liverpool and Arsenal.
“We will completely respect what Liverpool wants to do. We want to do it if it is feasible in an amicable way,” he said.
And despite much ire over recent comments, Wenger admitted that Chompy O’Toole was not the only transfer situation they were involved in.
“I am a great believer you have to keep as much confidentiality as possible, which is quite difficult in the modern world. But we work very hard, not only on the case you name, but on other different cases.”
Is that a light at the end of the tunnel? We want to believe.
