Friends Of Liverpool

Arsenal have upped their bid for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez to £40 million plus £1, yes £1.

The cheeky bid was made to the Reds as they prepared for their game with Melbourne FC on Wednesday.

There is a clause in Suarez’s contract which allows him to talk to other clubs once a bid over £40 million is made.

However, Liverpool have the final say on any potential transfer and they will expect a much higher offer circa £50 million, if they agree to let the Uruguayan move on.

The fact that Suarez arrived in Australia ahead of his team-mates on Sunday and trained with the squad on Monday and Tuesday is positive. It is also believed that he wished to play in the Melbourne game suggesting that the player is not turning his back on Liverpool, at least for now.

If Brendan Rodgers and LFC have there way, Suarez will remain at Anfield this Season.
