Gunners expected to make a final offer despite Liverpool’s insistence that Suarez will not be sold.
Arsenal are expected to make a final bid approaching £50m for Liverpool’s wantaway striker Luis Suarez, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The Gunners have seen two bids for Suarez rejected this summer, the second – of £40m and £1 – designed to trigger a clause in the 26-year-old’s contract.
Liverpool chairman John W. Henry insisted the Uruguayan is not for sale at any price, after Suarez went public with his desire to leave Anfield for North London.
The former Ajax striker claims Liverpool promised to allow him to join a Champions League outfit if the Reds failed to qualify for UEFA’s premier club competition, and Suarez believes the clause forces Liverpool to allow him to speak to suitors who bid over £40m.
The Merseyside outfit have denied the existence of the clause and have been supported by PFA chief Gordon Taylor.
