Luis Suarez‘s representatives have told Arsenal they will have to raise their offer for the striker to £40million if they are serious about signing him, according to the Daily Telegraph. 

The Uruguyan striker has a £40m release clause in his contract, although Liverpool are still adamant their star man is going nowhere, insisting they only need to inform the striker if and when the fee is met.

The Reds insist the forward is worth in excess of the £50million they recieved for Fernando Torres from Chelsea in January 2011, a sum well short of the only bid recieved for the forward so far – £30million from Arsenal.

Arsenal have been told by the striker’s representatives they must raise their offer to £40million if they are to even be considered, something Arsene Wenger is reportedly willing to do.

Wenger sees Suarez as his number one target, and is willing to offer as much in order to keep ahead of Real Madrid in the pecking order.

The saga could take another twist should Arsenal submit a £40million offer, with Liverpool reportedly reluctant to let the striker go, despite the release clause.

Brendan Rodgers is aware he does not want the saga running on into the start of the season, but such is the club’s desire to keep hold of Suarez they are willing to let things get messy if it means hanging on to the Uruguayan for another season at least.
