Arsenal's players are desperately waiting for Luis Suarez to complete his transfer from Liverpool before next month's deadline, according to young Gunners goalkeeper Damian Martinez.
Suarez has pleaded with Liverpool to let him leave after claiming they have broken his contract by not accepting a bid from Arsenal, although the future of the Uruguay international remains uncertain.
Arsenal have made two formal offers for Suarez, both of which have been rejected by Liverpool, with the most recent bid of £40,000,001 made in expectation of triggering a release clause written into the deal of the player.
Liverpool, however, have interpreted the stipulation differently to both Arsenal and the player, and Suarez is now prepared to take the case to the Premier League in the hope of forcing through a transfer to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal have focused their attention on the acquisition of the 26-year-old having signed only Yaya Sanogo on a free transfer, and Martinez is hopeful Suarez will arrive to strengthen the squad ahead of the new Premier League season.
"We are all waiting for Suarez to join Arsenal," the 20-year-old Argentine told Goal.com.
"Arsene Wenger wants him more than anybody else. I hope the deal gets done so we can aim at something more than qualifying for the next Champions League.
"Lets see if we can break the bank and bring him in."
