Arsenal target, Luiz Suarez will consider submitting a formal transfer request and or court action if Liverpool to not let him join Arsenal reports BBC. The BBC reported yesterday that Suarez and his advisers are of he opinion that Arsenal’s cheeky £40,000,001 bid was good enough to trigger a release clause in Suarez’s contract which allows him to leave Liverpool should a top 4 club bids over £40m for him.
However, Arsenal manager has said although he wants to sign Suarez, he wants the deal done in a very amicable manager. The French man has this to say when asked about the prospect of signing Luiz Suarez :
“We want to [sign Suarez] if it is feasible in an amicable way,” said Gunners manager Arsene Wenger.
“We will respect what Liverpool want to do. I don’t want to speak about Suarez, because that is between Liverpool and Arsenal.
“I am a great believer you have to keep as much confidentiality as possible, which is quite difficult in the modern world.
“But we work very hard, not only on the case you name, but on other different cases. We can still strengthen the squad, there is one month to go. We are at the beginning of August and working very hard to strengthen our squad.
“I am confident. You look at many teams around us. Nothing has happened until now. At the moment the market hasn’t moved a lot. Apart from Manchester City, nobody has done anything.”
Arsenal had 2 weeks ago bid £40,000,001 for Suarez after been made aware of a clause in Suarez’s contract that enables any of the top 4 EPL teams bar Manchester United to sign the South American. Liverpool however rejected the bid believing they are not under any obligation to sell the striker since the contract clause only mean they have to let Suarez know a bid of such an amount has arrived for him.
Liverpool are confident they have a good case but this has not stopped Suarez and his representatives to consider a court action against Liverpool. The striker according to BBC has told Liverpool’s manage Brendan Rodgers that he wants to leave in order to play in the champions league.
