Luis Suarez to Arsenal not ruled out by Wenger

Arsene Wenger refused to be drawn on speculation linking Arsenal with a move for Luis Suarez when questioned about the Liverpool striker after the Gunners touched down in Jakarta.

Arsenal are reported to have made a bid for the unsettled Suarez in the past few days, with Liverpool rejecting a proposal of around £30 million from the north London club.

The Gunners, it is claimed, are considering a renewed approach to bring the Uruguay international to the Emirates Stadium, but Wenger says the specifics of the club's transfer negotiations remain a private matter.

Wenger told reporters on Arsenal's pre-season trip to Indonesia: "Suarez? As you know the transfer period demands secrets and confidentiality, so I can't answer the question."

Suarez has outlined a desire to leave Liverpool having grown frustrated with life in the Premier League, but the Anfield club maintain they want to keep the player beyond the summer transfer deadline.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers says he has been in constant contact with the 26-year-old since the end of last season, and is optimistic Suarez will reconsider his want to leave Liverpool, and instead stay on Merseyside.

"We communicate in some way nearly every day either through text or conversations," Rodgers told talkSPORT.

"Over the course of the last few months and towards the end of the season there has been a lot of speculation with Luis, but the fact is it remains the same."

He added: "At the minute he is on a break, he is relaxing with his family. We are in constant communication.

"He has got three years left on his contract, we don’t want to sell him, and we hope everything will be fine for the summer."
