Arsenal to move back in for cut-price Luis Suarez transfer...
#Arsenal are ready to rekindle their interest in former Liverpool hero #LuisSuarez , according to reports.
The Gunners, who made an infamous £40million plus £1 bid for the striker back in 2013, are now ready to test #Barcelona’s resolve to keep the Uruguayan, according to +The Sun
Suarez has struggled to regain his electric Reds form following his £75m summer move, and has scored just five goals in 16 appearances for Barca since returning from his biting ban in late October.
Andoni Zubizarreta, the man who brought #Suarez to Spain, has since been sacked, and the 28-year-old has also fallen out of favour with manager Luis Enrique, who axed the former Anfield ace for the recent 6-0 rout of Elche, where Lionel Messi, Neymar and Pedro were all on target. Per +Metro
Arsene Wenger, however, remains keen on the hitman, and would jump at the chance of teaming Suarez up with fellow South American Alexis Sanchez *at the Emirates should he become available at a cut price.

New article (FA Cup Fourth Round Soccer Review 2015) Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea fell prey to Bradford City at Stamford Bridge. If you were betting against a Bradford City win, then you were doing it wrong. It must have been a great feeling until the 40th minute as the Blues dominated

Surprised? Didn’t see that coming? Well, isn’t it why we love this game so much? The top three teams of the English Premier League are now out of the FA Cup.
Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea fell prey to Bradford City at Stamford Bridge. If you were betting against a Bradford City win, then you were doing it wrong. It must have been a great feeling until the 40th minute as the Blues dominated the tie after scoring two early goals. But the resilient Bradford City came back from behind and equalized the two goal deficit in the 74th minute. They added two more goals before the end of normal time and the league leaders lost 2 – 4. In the post match interview, the Blues’ boss expressed his feeling of embarrassment after losing to a lower division team. Not just that, the Portuguese manager also claimed that he was delighted for his opponents.
The reigning Premier League champions also went down the same road as Chelsea. Manchester City, not only lost to Middlesbrough, but they also couldn’t manage to get off the mark at the Etihad. The game ended 0 – 2 in favor of Middlesbrough, who will now face Arsenal at the Emirates. The third ranked team in the Barclays Premier League also couldn’t manage to pick up a win in the fourth round of this prestigious cup. Crystal Palace got one better of the Saints at St. Mary’s. Ronald Koeman’s men lost 2 – 3 and now the top four finish will be their only goal until the end of the season.
LVG’s Manchester United weren’t as impressive as one would have expected them to be against Cambridge United. The Red Devils looked quite pale in the first half and although their game play improved in the second half, they were unable to find the back of the net. The 20-time English champions were held to a goalless draw and the replay of the fixture will be played on Feb 3 at Old Trafford. The Merseyside giants, Liverpool were also involved in a stalemate at Anfield. Bolton will invite the five-time European champions for the replay at the Macron Stadium after a 0 – 0 draw.
The Gunners, also the holders of the FA Cup, scraped a win against Brighton and Hove Albion. Walcott, Ozil and Rosicky got on the score sheet for the North Londoners as they won 2 – 3 at Falmer Stadium. Arsene Wenger praised Rosicky after his spectacular performance in the match. The Frenchman said, “If you love football, you love Rosicky”.
The other Premier League team to advance to the fifth round includes Aston Villa, who won against AFC Bournemouth at Villa Park. Sam Allardyce’s West Ham United also won at the weekend. They traveled to Bristol City and managed to win by just a one goal margin. Leicester City stunned Tottenham Hotspurs as the game at the White Hart Lane finished 1 – 2 in favor of City. In the match against Birmingham City, West Brom came out on top and they’ll face West Ham in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
The complete draw of the fifth round of the FA Cup:
Crystal Palace vs Liverpool / Bolton
Arsenal vs Middlesbrough
Aston Villa vs Leicester City
West Brom vs West Ham
Bradford City vs Sunderland / Fulham
Blackburn Rovers v Rochdale / Stoke City
Derby County vs Reading
Preston North End / Sheffield United v Cambridge United / Manchester United
Manchester United, 4th, are currently the highest ranked team of the top tier English football to remain in the FA Cup with the Gunners taking the second spot.

Arsenal pursue shock cut-price deal for right back Joao Pereira
According to Tutto Mercato Web, Arsenal are looking to bring Valencia right back Joao Pereira to the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners snapped up Calum Chambers and Mathieu Debuchy last summer, but with Carl Jenkinson potentially staying at West Ham permanently, another right back may be on Arsene Wenger's shopping list - even with the emergence of Hector Bellerin.
Reports now suggest that another La Liga defender could arrive in North London, with Villarreal's Gabriel Paulista on the verge of completing his move to the Emirates Stadium.
Now, it's Valencia's Pereira on the radar, with TMW suggesting that the Gunners could bring the Portuguese international to the club in a bid to add more depth to his defence.
Pereira, 30, joined Valencia from Sporting Lisbon back in 2012 having impressed at the European Championships, and has made 40 appearances for Portugal as a mainstay of their defence.
Yet, this season, Pereira has been frozen out at Valencia, with manager Nuno preferring to use either Antonio Barragan or Joao Cancelo at right back.
Valencia sporting director Francisco Rufete confirmed earlier this season that Pereira will leave the club, whether it be in January or at the end of his contract this summer.
The Spaniards will therefore put up little fight if Arsenal do look to bring Pereira to the club, but Tutto Mercato Web do also note that the Gunners have other names on their shortlist too.

Brighton 2-3 Arsenal: Ozil, Walcott & Rosicky strike as Gunners clinch tense win
Arsenal battled their way to a 3-2 win over Brighton to move one step closer to retaining the FA Cup.
England winger Walcott set the tone for a dominant first-half display from the holders with the opener in just the second minute, while Ozil - making his first start since October - added the second before half-time.
Having offered precious little in terms of an attacking threat prior to the break, Brighton reduced the arrears early in a much-improved second-half showing when Chris O'Grady capitalised on some poor Arsenal defending to score.
Hopes of a stirring comeback on a weekend of upsets appeared to be dashed when Tomas Rosicky volleyed in Olivier Giroud's chipped pass from the edge of the box.
There was still time for Sam Baldock to set up a nervy finish with a measured 75th-minute finish, but Arsene Wenger's men held firm.
Arsenal started with the confidence of a side enjoying a three-match winning run without conceding a goal, their most recent triumph having come against Premier League champions Manchester City.
Walcott and Ozil were unused substitutes in that game but came to the fore at the Amex Stadium, the former opening the scoring inside 90 seconds with his first goal in more than a year.
When the sides last met at the same stage in 2013, Walcott broke Brighton hearts with an 85th-minute winner in a game that also ended 3-2, but he was much quicker off the mark this time around, collecting Calum Chambers' right-wing cross with his first touch and steering home with his second.
Brighton struggled to stem the flow of attacks and fell two behind midway through the half as Ozil turned neatly in the box and swept a precise finish beyond David Stockdale following Rosicky's neat pass into feet.
A rare foray forward from Chris Hughton's side saw Baldock fire high and wide from 12 yards just before the half-hour mark, but when Brighton finally did manage a shot on target it changed the complexion of the match.
It came five minutes into the second half when Rosicky's poor clearance allowed O'Grady to seize possession in the box and he showed excellent composure to fire a low shot past the flat-footed Wojciech Szczesny.
The goal energised the home fans and suddenly Brighton seemed to harbour hopes of matching Bradford City's stunning FA Cup turnaround against Chelsea on Saturday, with Phil Parkinson's side having come from 2-0 down to win 4-2.
That notion was soon dispelled, though, as Rosicky scored the pick of the bunch in the 59th minute. The Czech looked one way and played a pass the other before volleying the return ball from Giroud beyond Stockdale.
Baldock's chipped finish gave Brighton a glimmer of hope, but a record home crowd were denied the equaliser that would have forced an unlikely replay as Arsenal - who saw Alexis Sanchez clip the crossbar with a late free-kick - marched on to round five.
