Expect Arsenal to Break Transfer Record Twice?

Expect Arsenal to Break Transfer Record Twice?There is nothing new that Arsenal football club is linked with top players. That happens in every transfer window. However, they normally fail to lure transfer targets for one reason or the other. Likewise, gunners have not yet completed a single big name signing this summer and fans are getting desperate.

Nevertheless, for now, reports suggest that Arsenal are close to signing two top stars and in that process Wenger is likely to break the transfer record twice. Brazilian and Atletico Mineiro winger Bernard and Liverpool superstar Luis Suarez are reportedly edging closer to becoming a gunner.

Arsenal current transfer record of 15 million pounds was set in 2009 when the Londoners splashed the amount to sign Russian playmaker Andrei Arshavin

Since then, Wenger has normally focused more on buying youngsters and for worst the club sold star players without replacing them.

Gunners are ready to pay a reported sum of 21 million pounds to secure the services of Bernard who contributed directly in 27 goals last season. Adding to that, he played two cameos for the Brazilian national side in the Confederations Cup as well.

On the other hand, Liverpool have rejected Arsenal’s bid for Uruguayan Luis Suarez but reports suggest that Londonders are not giving up on their pursuit and will come up with a 40 million pounds that may as well be enough to lure the prolific striker.

The question remains, Should gunner supporters expect that Arsenal will break transfer record twice this simmer with the above mentioned amounts? Is it really possible?

Fans hope that they will not be disappointed, promises will be fulfilled and big name players will sign for the club this time around without letting one of their own star players leave the club. For now, they are waiting with their fingers crossed.

Arsenal in the last 13 years have won the premier league and been runners up about 4 times,won the FA cup 4 times and been finalists twice,4 charity shields and been finalists in the Champions league and EUAFA cup all this in the time you say you have had a season ticket,this season the manager and board have said they intend to spend big to bring in top players and have made bids on a couple,this season Arsenal are once again fighting to win the Champions league,I am not an Arsenal fan pal but I can smell bullsh-t anywhere and you are full of it !!
