Uruguayan striker wants to leave Anfield and has been linked with a move to the Gunners.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he is hoping for an “amicable” end to the Luis Suarez transfer saga.
The Uruguayan hasn’t been shy in revealing his determination to leave Anfield this summer with the Gunners reported to have triggered a release clause in his contract after registering a £40 million plus £1 bid in July.
It was suggested that the offer only permitted Suarez to be made aware of the interest from the Reds’ Premier League rivals, although the complex nature of the clause means confusion still hangs in the air.
Wenger is likely to continue his pursuit of the 26-year old and hopes the situation can be resolved before the transfer window snaps shut.
“The transfer window finishes on August 31 and we are working very hard to strengthen the squad,” he told talkSPORT.
“I don’t want to speak about Suarez because that’s between Liverpool and Arsenal.
“We completely respect what Liverpool wants to do. And we want to do that, if it’s feasible, in an amicable way. We have to keep as much as confidentiality as possible.”
Brendan Rodgers is determined to hang onto his top asset, who led the club scoring charts last season with 30 goals, and the club share their manager’s resolve to keep him despite his past misdemeanours.
