Report: Arsenal Set To Table £40m Bid For Luis Suarez

By on July 23, 2013

According to reports on Tuesday morning, Arsenal are set to make a record £40m bid for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez.

It was reported two weeks ago that our opening £30m bid was rejected out-of-hand by the Merseysiders but now it appears we’re ready to test Liverpool’s resolve once again with an improved £40m bid.

The new offer will also test the validity of the much talked about clause in Suarez’s contract, with the players agent claiming such an offer will act as a release clause while Liverpool insist it simply means they have to inform Suarez of an official approach.

Brendan Rodgers is desperate to keep hold of his star man and the pair are understood to have held talks on Monday, but whether he’s managed to persuade the 26-year-old to remain at Anfield is unclear. However, the Mirror suggest Arsene Wenger is confident the offer of Champions League football will be enough to lure Suarez to north London.

The Uruguayan has emerged as Wenger’s No.1 target in recent weeks after a deal for Gonzalo Higuain went cold when Real Madrid upped their asking price to over £30m. The Argentinean now seems close to joining Napoli and Madrid are expected to make a real push for Suarez as soon as Higuain is off the books, and with Spain believed to be the controversial striker’s preferred destination, we’re at serious risk of missing out our three main striking targets (Suarez, Higuain, Rooney).

This is shaping up to be a key few days and if Higuain ends up moving to Napoli before we make a breakthrough for Suarez, I get the feeling this is going to all end in tears for us.

    it will b very very unfortunate and sad if any of this strikers are missed bcos a coach like wenger who is good in seeing qualities of a good player should know that this two suarez and gonzale Huiguain are more than quality but are talented and will bring something defferent to our team.

    Typical… I’m sure that if Napoli completes the signing of Higuain
    then Real will at least match our ‘supposed’ bid for Suarez.
    Then of course, the Scousers will rather sell Suarez abroad and they mught even accept a lower bid as everybody knows that strenghtening a direct ‘rival’ (even though Liverpool is not really challenging for a CL spot) is the worst thing you can do.

    We may very well end up empty handed if these transfer sagas turn out like that.

    I still CANNOT believe that AW decided not to bid a few Millions more for Higuain and get him signed real quick.
    Even though Real M tactics were far from fair, they may well have the last laugh.

    Higuain for 30M or Suarez for 40M ??? For me this a no brainer….
