Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is confused about the transfer saga involving the club and Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, and he has revealed that the potential deal is currently on standby, reports Goal.com.
Suarez, who has been Liverpool's key-man for two seasons now, has made it public knowledge that he is no longer happy at the club, and admitted during the Confederations Cup that he wanted to leave in order to play in the Champions League again, but since those reports, the club have rejected two bids from Premier League rivals Arsenal.
However, the want-away striker has now made it brutally clear to Brendan Rodgers and the club's officials that he wants out of Anfield and wants to join Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium.
Suarez has revealed that he is ready to hand in a written transfer request and has even threatened to take Liverpool to court if they don't sell him when the right offer comes in.
The Uruguayan is also banking on the PFA and the Premier League to support him as he tries to push through a move to Arsenal.
The 26-year-old was told by the club that if they fail to reach the Champions League under Brendan Rodgers, he can then leave the club, however they are now against selling the striker at all.
Arsenal have already had two bids rejected for the Uruguayan striker and Wenger has admitted that he has no idea where they stand.
"At the moment the situation is on standby," Wenger told Al Jazeera Sport. "I heard that [Suarez is considering legal action to force a move] but this is sometimes linked with things that you don't know as a potential buyer.
"That is the story between Suarez and Liverpool and I don't know what has been said, what has been promised and what has been written and that is only Suarez and Liverpool that can decide that.
"It's nothing to do with us. We have been told that the player wants to leave Liverpool and that's why we've acted."
