Will Luis Suarez hand in a transfer request?

Posted on August 03, 2013 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal have been in the market for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez all summer.

The Gunners have had two bids turned down for the Uruguayan international already, but are still keen to test Liverpool’s resolve in the coming weeks.

Sources close to the player have suggested the 26-year old may consider handing in a transfer request if Liverpool continue to reject offers for his services.

After Arsenal trigged his transfer clause, Liverpool were obliged to let Suarez know of the interest and it had appeared he was willing to speak with Arsenal’s representatives.

Liverpool value the striker at around £50M, but are still wary Suarez might take matters into his own hands regarding his future.

Long-serving midfielder Steven Gerrard has urged the Uruguayan to stay one more season at the club, and his teammates have echoed his words.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has always said he will continue to make an approach for Suarez in an ‘amicable’ way. He respects the 26-year old is under contract with the Merseyside outfit, but has highlighted how Arsenal are in need of a proven PL goalscorer if they wish to end their trophy drought.

The question remains whether Luis Suarez will take matters into his own hands by handing in a transfer request, or if he will indeed commit his future to Liverpool.

    We (Arsenal) need quality players but 2 things.
    1st I think Suarez will go to another team he views as bigger than Arsenal.
    2nd I firmly believe that Wenger lied to the fans about any transfers. He had no intention of spending any money on top stars and bid low then didn’t follow up with a bid he knew would be accepted.
    We have made low offers for 3 players now and Wenger has not closed 1 of them, nor will he.

    More lies as Arsenal slides further (no 4th place next year) and top players don’t want to come because Wenger hasn’t won anything for their entire professional playing career.
    Hell some of todays top players were not even in their final years of secondary school last time Arsenal won anything with Wenger.

    to submit a transfer request is not easy. Suarez sighed contract last year for some 4 years and if he want to submit a transfer request, that means he must repay something like 10% of his remaining contract out of his pocket. That’s a lot of money, he must be rally pissed off to do so.
