British paper The Sun on Thursday reported that Arsenal expects Luis Suarez to tell Liverpool that he wants to leave and thus force through a move to the Emirates. The Mirror, meanwhile, is reporting that Liverpool is prepared to sell
the Uruguayan striker, but coach Brendan Rodgers wants nothing less than $77 million.
The Gunners believe that the $62 million bid the club lodged for Suarez earlier this week has triggered a release clause in his contract, and that all he needs to do is confirm his desire to leave Liverpool to force through a transfer. But coach Arsene Wenger is concerned that the striker would rather move to Real Madrid, whose main target this summer is Tottenham forward Gareth Bale.
