Wenger Wants Ajax Hotshot Luis Suarez

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has reportedly placed Ajax striker Luis Suarez at the top of his summer wish list as he looks to bring in new striking talent to the Emirates. The Uruguayan international has been an incredible success in the Dutch Eredivisie since arriving at Groningen in the summer of 2006.

The 23 year old has helped Ajax to within reach of their first domestic title in six seasons and is sure to be a target of many of Europe’s elite but the north London club apparently wish to arrange a deal before Suarez flies out to the World Cup where he could attract even more interest.

Having managed an amazing 45 goals in 46 matches this season and a total of 98 goals in a little under three seasons at Ajax. The Gunners are looking to broaden their options up front after seeing an injury crisis earlier in the season deeply affect their title chase.

Marouane Chamakh is set to join the club in the summer and the likes of Carlos Vela and Eduardo have been linked with moves away from Arsenal. Wenger is hoping to splash the cash and has been promised significant funds to help rebuild his squad and end their five season silverware drought.

We already know that Newcastle & West Brom are making their way back up to the PL, but what about those that go back down?

Hull, Burnley and Portsmouth make their way back down to the Championship.
Thoughts on whether they'll be back up again next season, or will they do a Leeds and fall deeper and deeper down...?

In other news, due to Arsenal's collosal FAIL this afternoon, if Spurs win their game against City on Weds, they'll be a mere two points behind them.  This MEANS that as of next week if Arsenal lose their next game, and Spurs win theirs, Spurs will go 3rd.
