The hot topic in the transfer market is Luis Suarez and you can't question that after the bombshell he just dropped. In an exclusive interview with the guardian and the telegraph, he clearly indicates that he want out. With Madrid prioritizing Bale in their ₤100 million pursuit, Rooney edging for a move to Chelsea and Man City having recruited their strikers, Arsenal are his only option for champions league football which is what he wants. We do not need to go into why Manchester United is not a likely destination for the Uruguan but the 26 year is most likely heading to the emirates stadium.
Question is, are Arsenal clever and quick enough to sign him and start their transfer activity. Wenger's only recruit so far has been Sanogo and let's be honest he's not the name fans have been craving for. The number of departures at Arsenal need a replacement and the board have done the right thing in getting the dead wood off in Squillaci, Arshavin, Gervinho, Denilson and Santos to name a few. But a centre back, a defensive midfielder and a top class forward still need to be brought in for Arsenal to remotely challenge for the title. Suarez fits the bill, but does he?
Positives- His statistics:
All in all, Arsenal is a very respectable club and if this man were to sign, he is to respect the game a little more and be a little clever with his frustrations on the pitch. The Gunners' fans are excited about him signing but...

Amongst the Higuains, Rooney’s and Suarez’s, it is often easy to overlook the smaller transfers flying around. And yet we see, time and again, players from the smaller clubs become some of the most coveted in the league. Imagine picking up the likes of Michu last season. I had him in my sights before somebody else drafted him in and every single Michu goal last season hurt me deeply.
Here is a transfer round up focussing on mid table clubs
During the 2012/13 season, Kone produced 13 goals and 7 assists for a struggling Wigan side. Having started all but two games, expect him to be a regular for Martinez’s Everton side. In terms of fantasy football, Kone provides a strong option as a secondary or third choice striker. He is a regular starter, was NOT booked throughout last season and offers a strong physical presence. Along with some sharp finishing ability, we can expect him to blossom from the better supply of balls he will get at Everton. He is a hidden gem that requires a close eye during the draft.
Bet Prediction: Over 2.5 (odd - 1.75, Bwin)
This is an interesting one because Swansea are on a great run. They drew with Liverpool and finished that game really strongly, got a great result in Valencia in the Europa League and then went to Palace and won easily.
Arsenal have lost only two of their last 21 Premier League games. (W16, D3, L2). Despite their good start, Arsenal have only kept one clean sheet in five league games so far. Mesut Ozil has created more chances (10) in two Premier League games than any Manchester United player has done all season.
Swansea have scored two or more goals in three successive Premier League games for the first time since December 2012.
I think it's sufficient for an Over 2.5 prediction.
