All season long he has campaigned for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal's upper brass to recruit Liverpool attacker Luis Suarez no matter the cost, even if the only price-tag associated with a move exceeded £100m.
CNN host and prolific book writer Piers Morgan applauded Wenger's capture of Mesut Ozil at the tail-end of the summer market, for a club record £42.4m and has hoped that the Frenchman follow that success up with acquiring Suarez, who has been responsible for 19 goals and ten assists from 14 Premier League matches this season (a strike efficiency return of one goal/assist every 43 minutes).
With news this morning from The Sun that Wenger is allegedly looking at fortifying his forward line in the winter window but that the Emirates Stadium would not be welcoming the £100m Suarez, but the £2m Dimitar Berbatov from Fulham, there may have been an expectant outrage from Morgan…
Berbatov would be an interesting signing. Lazy, but brilliant. #Afc— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 2, 2014
If all Berbatov does is lurk in and around the box, poking in the endless chances we create, he could do very well at Arsenal. #Afc— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) January 2, 2014
The Bulgarian, who once cost Manchester United £30.75m after Sir Alex Ferguson successfully bid for him whilst the player represented Tottenham Hotspur, has scored just four times and assisted twice in 15 games so far this season, however, as touched on by HITC sports editor Dan Coombs here, that may well be down to a lack of motivation, rather than talent.
Considering all the chances created by the Arsenal midfield: Mesut Ozil (45), Theo Walcott (23), Jack Wilshere (24), Aaron Ramsey (26) and Santi Cazorla (26), Berbatov would be fed an abundance of balls and, considering his shooting accuracy remains on point at 60% for the season, he may well see a rise in his own goal return.
It looks like it's good enough for Piers, is it good enough for you?
