Arsenal is about to put the pressure on Liverpool. Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger has upped his club’s offer for the Uruguayan international striker by offering Liverpool an impressive £35m bid. Arsenal is also close to pulling a deal for Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuaín, but they are waiting to complete a deal until they can confirm whether they are available to take Suarez off of Liverpool’s hands.
Arsenal have been in contact with Liverpool to indicate a readiness to pay £30m for the Uruguayan only to be told that the figure was too low. Only something much closer to £40m may make Liverpool reconsider, even though they will fight to keep their star player. Wenger is keen to give them a decision to make and Manchester City have also expressed an interest.
Suarez has been adamant about his desire to leave Anfield and this could finally be his chance to bolt if the Gunners are able to put together a big enough offer to please Liverpool.
This continues to be an interesting situation to watch, but it would be a huge get for The Gunners if they are able to pull off landing the Uruguayan star.
