Arsenal Transfer News: Arsenal Offers £30m For Luis Suarez


 Arsenal Transfer News – Arsenal has mostly been connected with Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain, but the two teams are yet to come to terms and it’s not a done deal. Either way, the London club is looking to make a splash, and made a £30 million offer for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez, a bid that was rejected.

Arsenal have had a club record offer of £30 million for Luis Suárez rejected by Liverpool and have to decide whether or not to return with an increased bid for the controversial forward.

In an unexpected twist to one of the summer’s most fascinating transfer sagas, Arsenal became the first club to make an approach for Suárez, only for their offer to be dismissed by the Anfield club, who continue to maintain that the 26-year-old is not for sale.

Suarez has mostly been linked with Real Madrid this summer, and while Liverpool would love to keep him around, the controversial striker is expected to leave Anfield this summer. While a £30 million signing would be a club-record signing fee for the Gunners, Suarez is estimated to be worth significantly more than that.
