TRIBAL TRENDS - TOP 5: Arsenal triple swoop starts Emery era; Firmino rates Barcelona; Messi distraction causing Suarez sale;

Here we are again. Letting you know what were the most popular articles on Tribal over the past seven days.

All the big clubs and storylines are mentioned. So let's go.

As the transfer season has lumbered out of its dormant state, it is little surprise that a big move topped all our stories this week.

The Sun claimed Arsenalareplanning a triple Bundesliga swoop worth £75m.

The mooted deal would include Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno and Freiburg youngster Caglar Soyuncu.

After today's managerial appointment of Unai Emery, I expect plenty more Arsenal transfer stories in this column over the next few weeks.

Moving to Spain now, and ex-Barcelona player Lobo Carrasco has revealed that Liverpool striker Roberto Firminois a huge fan of the Catalan club.

Carrasco was discussing the speculation surrounding the potential exit of Luis Suarez from the Nou Camp on El Chiringuito de Jugones.

Selling another player to Barcelona would be cruel for Liverpool fans. Guess they would now know how Southampton supporters feel!

Other pressing matters have been at the forefront for Reds fans. You guessed it, a little game in Kiev this weekend

Jurgen Klopp says his side are ready to flip the script against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

The enigmatic German was at his expletive best describing how Liverpool have embraced their underdog status heading into Saturday night's encounter.

According to Turkish journalist Fırat Günayer, Manchester United could be close to securing their first signing of the summer.

Günayer has claimed Besiktas attacker Anderson Talisca has signed a pre-contract with the Red Devils.

United fans are understandably searching through transfer stories as their side can boost their chances of challenging for the Premier League next season.

And they may not have this one over the line just yet. Liverpool have also been quoted by Gunayer as having not given up on signing the Brazilian.

Luis Suarez and his aforementioned exit from Barcelona rounds out our top 5 this week.

Speaking on El Chiringuito de Jugones, Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda claimed the Blaugrana hierarchy wanted Suarez sold this summer.

They believe Suarez is getting older, and more importantly, becoming a negative influence on Lionel Messi.

We could see Suarez back in the Premier League again, with Chelsea and Manchester City both showing interest.
