Luis Suarez is stepping up his attempts to force a move to Arsenal after claiming that Liverpool previously agreed to let him go if a big club made a bid, reports The Daily Mirror.
The Anfield outfit have been told by Suarez's camp that the striker feels let down after they refused to honour what he thought was a promise to sell him if they failed to reach the Champions League.
The agreement is thought to state that Liverpool would accept a bid of £35million from Real Madrid, Bayern Munich or a big London club.
Suarez is now ready to agitate until the club agree to let him join Arsenal in what could possibly turn in to the ugliest transfer saga in years.
Despite refusing to go to the Premier League over the issue of the £40million release clause, the 26-year-old still believes that the clause obliges Liverpool to accept Arsenal's bid of £40million plus £1.
Liverpool are adamant that no such obligation exists in Suarez's contract after admitting they only had to inform the player of the bid.
The Uruguayan and his representatives met with club executives this summer to iron out the future of the player.
Suarez's agent Pere Guardiola insists the club agreed to negotiate if a Champions League team - except Manchester United - offered £35million.
He also believes that both Real Madrid and Chelsea have been in contact with Liverpool over Suarez but have failed to notify the Uruguayan international.
With Arsenal yet to make another bid for their No.1 transfer target, it is obvious the Gunners and Arsene Wenger are prepared to wait to see the outcome of the dispute before launching another attempt to bring Suarez to the Emirates.
However, although Suarez is keen to join Arsenal, he is reportedly still hoping that Real Madrid decide to make a bid.
