Premier League side Liverpool have rejected a second bid from rivals Arsenal for their wantaway striker Luis Suarez, reports the BBC.
The original bid, that came a fortnight ago, was reported to be around £35million but was rejected by the Anfield club, as they are holding out for around £50million for the Uruguayan.
However, there is reportedly a clause in Suarez's contract that states that if the bid of over £40million is made, the striker has to be informed of the bid.
Cue the weirdest transfer offer you will ever see.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger offered Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers £40,000,001.
That single £1 means that Liverpool are duty bound to consider the offer as well as let the 26-year-old know.
Despite the offer meaning Suarez has the right to talk to Wenger and Arsenal's officials, the Merseyside club rejected the bid straight away.
Wenger has admitted that he is interested in signing a top-class striker and after failing to sign both Stevan Jovetic and Gonzalo Higuain, his attentions are now mainly focused on capturing the Liverpool striker.
It isn't understood how much Wenger is willing to spend on Suarez, but it seems that he will have to stump up an extra £10million if he wants Liverpool to take the offer seriously.
