Liverpool Rejects Another Arsenal Bid for Suarez

Arsenal on Tuesday made a reported $61.5 million bid for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, which the Reds later rejected. In fact, principal John Henry tweeted in response: “What do you think they’re smoking over there at the Emirates?”

Arsenal made its latest bid to sign the Uruguayan with the understanding that it would trigger a release clause in the contract he signed last summer, but Liverpool claims it is only compelled to tell Suarez about any bids received that exceed the amount offered by the Gunners.

Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers has repeatedly said he does not want to sell the club’s star striker; ESPN claims Liverpool is unlikely to contemplate any offers below $77 million, as Rodgers believes Suarez to be worth at least as much as compatriot Edinson Cavani, who joined Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer for a French record $84.5 million.

Speaking after Liverpool’s 2-0 win against Melbourne Victory, in which Suarez came on as a substitute and assisted the second goal, Rodgers indicated that the 26-year-old owed it to the club to stay: "The support he has received from the supporters and the people of the city of Liverpool has been unrivalled. In this period of time he's missed a lot of games for the club through various reasons. The people have stood by him, like a son and really looked after him."
