The Uruguayan striker is reported by the BBC to be furious that the reds have rejected a £40M + 1p transfer offer from the Gunners.

According to the sources highlighted by the Beeb, the player believes his contract stipulates that the £40M is a price which means he can leave Liverpool Football Club.  They say that the player is prepared to hand in a formal transfer request.

Arsene Wenger yesterday spoke out on the transfer saga:

"We want to sign him if it is feasible in an amicable way.

"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.

Liverpool rejected the initial offer, but at boardroom level are resigned to losing the player this summer - as he craves both Champions League football, and an increased salary that Fenway feel unable to afford.

According to Suarez, the player and the club had a verbal agreement that if LFC didn't qualify for the Champions League he could leave for £40M.  For Liverpool fans these words will come as very reminiscent of the 'verbal promises' offered to Fernando Torres - that ended up leaving the Spanish striker so unhappy with the Liverpool hierarchy.

The threat of legal action from the player is considered the last resort by the players representative.

The reds have made enquiries about Diego Costa as a replacement for Suarez, but will only purchase the player if they are convinced they will be receiving a transfer fee for Suarez.

Whilst the Liverpool board fully expect Suarez to depart this summer  - they are aware that Arsenal are the main challengers for a Champions League spot - and have been trying to garner interest from across the continent.

Luis Suarez ready to take Liverpool to court

  1. whatever he wish to do, let him leave, how could you hold on to an unhappy player. you take a look at todays game, the team was far more good before his introduction, so whether he is in or out of liverpoolfc, we dont care now. some say keep him and he will keep up just like tevez that time at city but i will say WHATEVER

  2. Banned for 22 matches over two seasons and has a cheek to want to leave or another English club???????? Good riddance you mental genius ynwa
    Dougie from Belfast! 630 today uck Suarez

  3. I reckon the courts will question why he signed the contract without this clause being written in after forcing a move from another club under the same sort of circumstances!

    • Also Liverpool have told him if he wants out he has to put in a formal transfer request so surely that’s the first step before he tries his hands in the courts. Or maybe he is just that greedy and still wants his loyalty bonus for a transfer that he himself wants!!!

  4. we need money to new player anyway so wats the point if he does’nt want to play in lfc anymore, the best way for it is to find another stiker that much better than him and more younger

  5. At Arsenal. All renew contract has a clause that if Arsenal don`t make CL spot. The players will suffer a decrease in wages. I think that is brilliant of coarse star players won`t agree to it . Theo,Jack,Ramsey ,Gibbs,Monreal, OX, and Koscielny all agreed to it, except Sagna he refuse to it.They will leave ,if Arsenal don`t make 4th spot next season .

  6. This is bulls***, hasn’t a source from the club said that Costa isn’t a replacement for Suarez.

    Can’t believe our own fan pages are trolling us also.

  7. I think that it’s time for that guy Suarez to leave. If he had gone to the court previously, he would not hesitate to do that agai. But I can’t understand with Liverpool. If once his contract is yet not over, whey should he let go? He MUST stay, like other clubs are doing. Crucify him until his contract is over
