Arsenal are ready to return to Liverpool with an improved bid for Luis Suarez and are worried their bid for Gonzalo Higuain is going to fail.
According to the Evening Standard, the Gunners are becoming increasingly confident they can secure the signing of the Anfield top scorer this summer.
Arsenal made a £30million bid for Suarez earlier this week and the report claims they are prepared to increase that fee, as Liverpool rejected the initial offer straight away.
However, it also claims that Emirates Stadium boss Arsene Wenger sees his chances of landing Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain as fading fast.
Not only does it say the Higuain deal is becoming increasingly unlikely, but moves for Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini and QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar too.
Higuain may yet remain at the Santiago Bernabeu next season as the report claims new manager Carlo Ancelotti will have talks with the 25-year-old next week regarding his future.
Arsenal were hoping a bid of £23million would be enough to secure his signing, but that is way off Real Madrid’s valuation.
