The latest reports indicate Luis Suarez is staying at Liverpool, with the club standing firm on Arsenal's approaches for their key man.
HITC readers and fans of the two clubs have had plenty to say on the matter, here's a selection of those comments:
AFC Joke: "Yes, I agree but it only confirms again that Mr Wenger has no idea in the transfer market.
"He could of got Higuain for 27 million but he was only willing to pay 23 m. There are only a few quality strikers available at the moment, there is no time to haggle for a few million. AW will lose out on all his targets because he is not 100% commited to actually spending money.
"Suarez will stay at LFC because he is waiting for a bigger club to show interest. Another poor season for us all to suffer awaits all Gunners. I hope Wenger finally goes next year."
Jones69: "Very true. AW was taken in by Suarez and he put all his eggs in one basket and it all went terribly wrong. We caved in on RVP, Nasri, Cesc and others far too easily for peanuts. Liverpool with Suarez and Spurs with Bale have shown that they have more ambition than AFC."
Can't take anymore: "Nobody with class wants to come to Arsenal. We are a joke of a team. We have a few quality players. We struggle because we can't fight for the game. We concede too many silly goals because our defence is a shambles. No chemistry between AW and Bold.
"Always the same every year for almost 10 years. We have no ambition and too much fear and zero experience. AW has showed again that he has lost the plot. He made silly offers for quality players that he knew would turn him down.
"Suarez is just playing with us , we all know that he would ask for a transfer request if it was Real Madrid, Barcelona and even Chelsea that were interested in him. He would prefer to stay at Liverpool and hope that RM come in for him in January.
"We also need a good keeper. a quality cb. Where are they? No comments from AW. I really hope that this is the last season of AW. I have been a Gunner since 1970 and this is by far the worst period. Even under Terry Neil and Don Howe, we won a couple of FA cups. Bring back George Graham."
deanjones: "'I'm a lpool fan,but I think the stick Wenger is getting is uncalled for.He has done great thinks for arsenal over the years,and he's only 11 first team players from winning the League Cup lol."
GoonerChris: "It has been very disappointing thus far especially with all major rivals having strengthened (some significantly - excluding ManU although they are champions !!). We need to judge at the end of course but the club have not helped themselves with all the hype about significant money to spend that has influenced fans expectations and target player's prices. I sincerely hope this doesn't end in tears - if it does and the team is not successful then management changes at the club must be on the cards."
