Liverpool striker Luis Suarez wants to hold talks with Arsenal over a move to north London, according to BBC Sport.
The Uruguayan will ask the Merseyside club if he can speak to the Gunners, as he believes they have triggered a clause in his contract.
A bid of £40,000,001 is said to have been made by Arsene Wenger, which the 26-year-old believes gives him permission to talk to clubs.
However, Liverpool's owners interpret the clause differently, as they believe it only obliges them to inform the forward of the offer that has been made for him, regardless of whether it has been accepted or not.
With Arsene Wenger seeming to have missed out on their other transfer target Gonzalo Higuain, who now seems set to sign for Napoli, they are prepared to go all out to secure Suarez's signature, and the bid of over £40m was designed to trigger the clause.
They previously made an offer of £30m for the former Ajax player, which was rejected, and Liverpool are thought to want at least £50m.
Suarez, who was given an extended summer break following the Confederations Cup in Brazil, joined up with the squad last weekend on their pre-season tour of Australia, but he has previously made clear his desire to play in the Champions League.
