Luis Suarez is ready to take legal action against Liverpool in a bid to force through his prolonged move to Arsenal, as reported by The Daily Mail.
Suarez has been linked with a move away from Anfield to the Emirates this summer but Liverpool have already rejected two bids from Arsenal and are not willing to sell the forward.
The Uruguay forward believes that Liverpool are breaching the rules on his contract by not allowing him to speak to Arsenal, despite the £40m bid which allows him to discuss terms with the north London club.
Liverpool are disputing the clause, insisting they are obliged only to inform Suarez of the offer. This has angered the forward who's future is preferred away from Merseyside.
Suarez’s advisers will seek to have their interpretation of the clause ratified by the Barclays Premier League. If that fails, the want-away striker will seek clarification from his legal team in a bid to establish if Liverpool are in breaking the contract.
This could start a court battle should Suarez believe he has rights to sue.
Suarez’s final option is to hand in a formal transfer request, though that is viewed as a last resort by his representatives.
Arsenal have been told that £50m would be enough to secure their man but Arsene Wenger doesn't want to pay such a high fee for one player.
The striker remains Arsenals primary target this summer and talks between the two clubs are on going.
