Luis Suarez ‘Very Close’ To Making Move To Arsenal

The Luis Suarez to Arsenal saga appears to have taken a twist today with speculation intensifying that the striker is close to securing a move to north London.

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Luis Suarez is believed to be close to making a move to Arsenal.

Luis Suarez Liverpool

The Luis Suarez to Arsenal saga appears to have taken another twist today with speculation intensifying that the striker is close to securing a move to north London, according to the Metro.

The report claims the Uruguayan hitman has made no secret of his desire to quit Anfield this summer with the Gunners making a strong push to try and persuade him to swap Merseyside for north London.

Arsene Wenger saw an opening bid of £30m rejected two weeks ago but widespread reports suggest he’s ready to go back in with an improved offer to test Liverpool’s resolve in keeping hold of the unsettled striker.

Suarez linked-up with his team mates in Melbourne on Sunday and is believed to have held face-to-face talks with Brendan Rodgers on Monday, with the Reds boss understood to be determined to hang on to his top marksman this summer.

However, according to South American journalist Martin Charquero the 26-year-old is now ‘very close’ to securing a sensational move to Arsenal, using his official Twitter account to confirm the news on Monday evening.

Translated, this means ‘Luis Suarez is very close to Arsenal’

The Metro claim Chaquero is close to Suarez and has held a series of interviews with the player in recent months, including one earlier in the summer where Suarez revealed he wanted to leave Anfield, so it certainly seems he could have an inside track on this proposed transfer.

Rodgers remained coy on Suarez’s future when he was quizzed on Monday and of course this is just the opinion of one South American journalist, so it should certainly not be taken at fact, but I think it’s safe to say the future of Luis Suarez should be a lot clearer by the end of this week.

    It’s a tough one. On one hand he scores goals for fun. On the other hand, I have spent the last year or so hating his existence. Maybe it’s time to get a bit more shallow like the man city and chelsea fans have done. Cant win nothing with 11 ‘good guys’.. apparently..

    Luis Suarez will NOT be joining Arsenal even if Wenger bids the 40 mill to talk to Suarez Liverpool will not sell to ANY English team,especially when they value him at 50mill plus! Its Laughable any gooners are taking wenger seriously

    • Ian Hawthorne

      July 23, 2013 at 1:07 am

      Exactly jamesh. Everybody knows he will go to Madrid. In my opinion, to not match the £30m Napoli have offered to Madrid for Higuain (who WANTS to join Arsenal)will be the biggest mistake Arsene Wenger has made in his entire reign as supremo at this club and should be deemed a sackable offence.

      really? don’t you think a world class player like suarez would want ucl football? i certainly would. plus its a chance for him to start a fresh. look what happened to sturridge in the last 4 months

      • Arron

        July 23, 2013 at 12:18 am

        No he’d want to win the champions league and league titles not battle it out for 4th place and a semi final

      • Margus12

        July 23, 2013 at 2:03 am

        He may well want to play UCL football but a world class striker also wants to be at a club where he’s got a chance of winning something!

    July 22, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    Infant i prefer Suarez to Higuain…therefore personally as a Gunner by DNA….i will welcome HIM (SUAREZ) with all my heart. He’s so hardworking player and good ball dribbler and doesn’t loose ball possession easily/cheaply!!! welcome to Emirates…!!

    This is from the same source that claims Bernard is having a medical at Arsenal, the day after playing in the Copa in South America.

    The only more ridiculous thing than believing these rumours, is somehow using them to attack Wenger.

  8. James

    July 22, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    What a desperate and idiotic signing this would be, and proof that Wenger has completely lost it.

    Liverpool can still make a profit on Suarez, if Wenger splashes £35m on him then after the player’s next inevitable series of ugly indiscretions he will be practically worthless.

    July 22, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    jamesh,u r talking crap.süarez has got a realese clause of £40m.so we don’t care whether liverfools value him at £90m or not.

    • jamesh

      July 22, 2013 at 11:14 pm

      Suarez has not got a 40m release clause! He has something in his contract that allows lfc to let suarez listen to offers from champions league teams,the club dont have to sell what so ever! if he did have a 40m clause why is wenger pissing about over 5m? haha you gooners are deluded! do you think liverpool are going to sell one of the best strikers in the world to arsenal for 10 mill less than we sold torres or 15 less than cavani went for..Jesus i guess you beleive silly websites like this do you? What is it now 8 years and no trophys? even we have won the fa cup and league cup since then and you say we are a spent force pfft

        suarez HAS got a release clause,put in his contract by the heads gone kenny daglish, it is for 40 mil but the clause expires august,smular to the clause soldado has that expires soon,wenger is pissing around because thats what he does TIGHT!!!, lfc should sell to a foriegn club but suarez only ants b munich or madrid an they dont seem to want him,as much as lfc supporters (the deluded ones that stil think there in istanbul) ptetend they dont are suarez goine will make arsenal come 3rd/4th if liverpool sell they will not come top 6 #FACT not good enuff and new signings are poor.

        I like the way you said “even we”. Guess you know liverpool is a crap club with a rich history now.. like your honesty there.

        On the other note, I have read in many websites that Suarez has a release clause of 40mil.Plus with all his antics, not many club will pay 50mil for him -except for City and Chelsea.

    • Margus12

      July 23, 2013 at 2:12 am

      Suarez has NOT got a £40m releas clause in his contract. He has a £40m inform clause, whereby Liverpool have to inform him of and consider any bids at and above that figure. Liverpool will not sell Suarez for a penny less than £50m. Since Arsenal’s record transfer outlay is £15m, can you really see them upping that by £35m? It’s all a publicity stunt to sell season tickets.

    well your translation is wrong!!

    L.S. se acera al Arsenal is directly translated to:
    Suarez moves himself closer to Arsenal

    but the better translation is:
    Suarez gets closer to Arsenal move

    nothing more nothing less, just more speculation from a pathetic press…
    And I’m an optimistic Arsenal fan

  13. RedCourtinho

    July 22, 2013 at 11:12 pm

    £40m allows Suarez to talk to the team offering the cash! But there if Liverpool don’t want to sell they won’t sell! It only allows teams to talk to him!

    Arsenal will not pay £55m, Arsenal are being used to draw out Real Madrid, arsenal are using Suarez to draw out Higuen at Real Madrid, if Suarez was truly for sale to an English club we’d have sold him to Manchester City. If Suarez isn’t an option for Real Madrid or Barcelona he will stay at Liverpool.

    • jamesh

      July 22, 2013 at 11:17 pm

      Mate thats what ive told them and they genuinely think hes going to arsenal its so funny,wenger has had cash for years yet hasnt won fek all for 8 seasons? hes a joke! If anyone buys suarez it will be madrid and for near as dam it 50m and thats IF suarez hands in a transfer request

    • van persie

      July 22, 2013 at 11:26 pm

      you seem to be the only one seeing this clearly. Arsene knows he is a major player, but its not who he wants.

    If Suarizo as I prefer to called him remains in the English Prem.Lge,he remains in Liverpool.liverpool re not fool to sell to opposition.

    No chance! This is just lazy journalism..there isn’t a buy out clause, it only means LFC will consider allowing the club to speak to Suarez. As BR said if Cavani is worth 54m then Suarez is worth the same at least..possibly more if its to another premier league club.

    If arsene wenger culd avoid 2 buy suarez,i tink he want 2 win it all,though he want a player player like him,bt i tink d money is 2 much.

    July 23, 2013 at 12:10 am

    Arsenal fans sorry to disappoint you but I have inside info that not only BR but FSG themselves will not sell saurez to an English club and will only consider an offer of over 55mil , no player plus cash deal either. So gunners don’t get ur hopes up as a few have said already lazy journalism .

    Lfc: Efficient modern stadium with huge matchday revenue
    Excellent academy (well just before Benitez desecrated it maybe)
    Finacial powerhouse hmmm nearly went bust a few years ago!
    King Kenny Oops
    Champions league!!!! Can’t see Suarez signing for the Gunners LOL

    • Margus12

      July 23, 2013 at 2:30 am

      You’re kidding right? We’re in the process of revamping our stadium. There isn’t a better academy in the country than Liverpool’s right now. Getting stronger financially with new Standard Chartered deal and huge kit deal with Warrior. Truly global club with a loyal, passionate fanbase matched in numbers only by Real Madrid and Man Utd and of course the most wonderful of histories. Compare to a club who have one cup winners cup to their name and who in Jack wilshire have produced one first team regular from the academy in all of Arsense Wenger’s time at the club.

    I have no doubt that Suarez could lead us towards the Premiership title. He is a world class footballer. If we could buy Fellaini and Caesar too then WOW. I know opinions are divided on Suarez. Well I am not a great Wenger fan anymore but I do think his fatherly qualities would help Suarez become a better person and a better player.

    July 23, 2013 at 12:30 am

    Hahahahahah. Even big boys can be tossed about in this manner. Are u are kid. Can’t u understand when u read…..Its my pleasure to help and summarise for u, the end results of all this Liv’pool/Suarez/Arsenal transfer saga.
    1)……ARSENAL FANS ARE MOCKED BY WENGER. The coach knows arsenal fans wil kil him if he is not making any action to buy. And knowing Liverpool can not sell even i that amount, he made a bid. So that fans we think he is seriouse.lol
    2) WENGER MUST BE AN IMBESILE: Him breaking fans heart and wasting time in wht he is sure wil never be, and other market are on buying available players, which he wil end up going for Average players loan. He resembles a fool.
    3) ENGLISH MEDIA ARE ILLITERATES AND ENEMIES OF LIV’POOL.YET MOCK FANS OF ARSENAL. Even my Nephew can wake up in the morning and conclude that now suarez is back to Livpool team, may be he can submit request…and they say as if it was done already…For Suarez to respond to his calling yesterday, join them in the training, dnt u think he wil be impressed by the new faces he see wth them? Pls u need sleeping tablets small boys.lol
    5) SUAREZ IS POSTPONING ENGLISH PRESS UNTILL THEY SUFFER. b4 he had his last game in Brazil, in his interview he said.”….i am giving them what they (English press) chew…” Which means he wil talk rubish to make them carry fake rumours to the fans…Be wise dudes.
    6) DO U THINK MOURINHO IS A FOOL?..he know its not possible suarez playing for another team in England. big teams like Chelsea, Man U and Man City are quiet, Arsenal are killing their time in what can not be.
    7) Suarez has learned his lessons. So after what coaches said aginst him last season they stil want him to play for him…so, He was like hmmmm “can this be selfishness,now i knw why they hated me, okkk, i never knw that teams in England want him. And after this he said he wants to play in Champions league, which he called Madrid, instyle eyeing Barca nad Bayern. He is a champion , can never go to Arsenal cos he knw Arsenal sell their best player, why him. It was press was interfixing his statements to say he wants arsenal move. Guys read with understanding and do not allow them to explain for u. Grow up pls. GUNERS…pls Go and Hug Transformers cos wenger wil not spend, and Suarez is in liverpool in front line up of Aspas…..Suarez…..Sturidge. For heartbreak. He wil score u 2 goals on ur first leg. Bet me hahahahahahahahaahhaahahah

      king man sounds like a liverpool supporter a deluded one, suarez is going,liverpool aint good enuff and if aspas (very average player) and toure are the guys to persuade suarez to stay lol plus playing alongside enrique and henderson/downing etc then sell him now,your squads a laughing stock, you aint even the best team in liverpool loooooooooooool let suarez go on and improve himself whilst improving an already better team than u

    July 23, 2013 at 1:16 am

    Even if he did go to Arsenal, if Real Madrid came calling in a year, he’ll be throwing his toys out of his pram again and wanting a move.

    July 23, 2013 at 1:18 am

    I think wenger his one of must stupid coach I ever seen in life…..A coach that normally look for cheap prize player at the end of the transfer he will finally sign remy or dzeko

  28. Femaj

    July 23, 2013 at 1:53 am

    Actually, nobody wil believe it until it become a true story, bt mind u, everybody thought Van persie, Torres & odas wil nt be allowed 2 join a rivalry team until it happened, dere4, anything can happen in football ok.

    U call urself james r jamesh,cnt even spell ur name. For cryin out loud why would wenger spend £37mln on higuein. i tot chesea neede him too and they hv the money so why didnt they pay.Suarez is comin to arsenal followed by benerd,fellaini,rooney and its gonner b a surprisin season for u guys

  30. sanjay rughoonauth

    July 23, 2013 at 6:04 am

    FSG sees players in terms of money nt quality so its logik suarez will be sold n one by one all young players which BR has brought will be sold out to make big profits, its reason behind FSG presence in lfc, just to make money
