Mertesacker: We all wanted Suarez

By on February 8, 2014

Arsenal centre-back Per Mertesacker says that the team was hopeful that Wenger would secure a deal to bring Luis Suarez to the Emirates.

‘When we heard that Arsenal might be interested in him, obviously we [the squad] were up for it and we thought he would fit in.

‘He is a pure striker that is what comes out after the transfer requests.’

Arsenal were linked with a fresh bid for Suarez early in the week, with Arsene Wenger refusing to rule it out. The controversial Uruguayan has 23 matches in 22 games this season.
