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.
