Liverpool star Luis Suarez is interested in a move to Arsenal and wants his agent to investigate the depth of their interest after they had a £30million bid rejected.
According to The Times, Suarez has asked Pere Guardiola to find out if the Gunners are willing to make their interest concrete and would be open to an Emirates Stadium switch.
It also claims Liverpool are as determined as ever to hang on to the Uruguay international, despite him giving another interview hinting at a desire to leave Anfield.
Recent reports claimed his original motivation that he wanted to leave the Premier League altogether because of perceived mistreatment by the British media, had now shifted to a desire for Champions League football.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reportedly has a significant amount of transfer funds at his disposal this summer and signing Suarez will smash the north Londoners’ transfer fee record.
However, The Times report goes on to say that Suarez’s preferred option would be a switch to Real Madrid, though this has failed to materialise and he is now keeping his options open.
The former Ajax striker admitted in a recent interview that he was flattered by the interest from Arsenal and Chelsea, though he laughed off the prospect of joining the latter.
