Liverpool's wantaway striker Luis Suarez is keen on sorting out his own future in a professional and friendly manner, despite both himself and manager Brendan Rodgers attacking each other verbally in the press this week.
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 the club 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 wantaway striker has now made it brutally clear to Rodgers and the club's officials that he wants out of Anfield and wants to join Arsene Wenger and 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.
However after making these comments, Suarez has now admitted that he wants his future to be dealt in a friendly manner as he still respects the Liverpool shirt.
"I'm still defending the Liverpool shirt and I will do so until the last minute," Suarez is quoted as saying by Marca.
"My aim is to reach an agreement with the club in a friendly manner and I hope the clause we agreed a year ago is fulfilled. Up to now, it hasn't been.
"It's not that I want to or am desperate to leave, but I like things to be clear and a year ago I made my position to the club clear."
Liverpool's captain Steven Gerrard is reportedly trying to persuade Suarez to stay, but the Uruguayan is not listening to the loyal servant.
"Gerrard has a lot of history with Liverpool and his words are very important but everyone should understand that I need to play the Champions League to keep growing as a footballer," added Suarez.
"Now I have the chance, I want to take it.
"A Champions League team (Arsenal) is making a big effort to get me and one always wants to be where they feel comfortable."
