Suarez To Force Arsenal Move This Week As Striker Misses Gerrard’s Testimonial Dinner
Luis Suarez will try to force a £40million move to Arsenal this week with the striker understood to be furious with Liverpool’s hierarchy over broken promises.
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 will try to force his move to Arsenal this week.
Luis Suarez will try to force a £40m move to Arsenal this week with the striker understood to be furious with Liverpool’s hierarchy over broken promises, according to the Mirror.
The report claims the Uruguayan hitman is ready to increase his efforts to push through a move to north London after Liverpool chiefs reneged on a verbal agreement to sell the striker to a club in the Champions League, and he and his advisers are now considering legal action, taking their case to Premier League arbitration and will even hand in a transfer request if needs be.
Suarez was the only member of Liverpool’s first team squad not to attend Steven Gerrard’s testimonial dinner on Sunday night despite receiving a warm reception from the Anfield faithful during a 2-0 win over Olympiakos, and this was another sure sign of his discontent at the club.
The saga could now get messy as Suarez’s camp are adamant that Arsenal’s £40,000,001 bid entitles them to hold formal talks with the Gunners but the Merseysiders insist they are under no obligation to allow him to do so or to accept any offer.
The Mirror suggest that Arsene Wenger is reluctant to make any further bid until the events of this week play out but the Frenchman is thought to be growing increasingly confident he can get his man as Suarez’s determination to leave Anfield grows.
Publicly, Liverpool insist they are not interested in selling the controversial striker but it remains to be seen whether Brendan Rodgers will be able to keep hold of an unsettled player who seems intent on leaving this summer.
