The Uruguayan’s future at Anfield has been the subject of much speculation of late, with the striker openly pursuing a switch to Real Madrid.
But, the La Liga side have so far failed to match his eagerness, which has left the door ajar for Arsenal.
The Gunners are in the market for attacking reinforcements, and are said to have turned their attention away from number one target Gonzalo Higuain to Suarez after being buoyed by comments made by the South American following an audacious £30m bid a few weeks ago.
Liverpool are aware that it may be difficult to convince their star man to stay put, and are bracing themselves for a transfer request once he joins up with the squad on their pre-season tour.
Although the Merseysiders are far from keen to sell to a domestic rival, the Gunners are confident that an offer in the region of £40m may be too tempting to turn down.
Suarez had cited treatment he has received from the media following a series of misdemeanours as the main factor behind his desire to move on, but it has since emerged that he in fact keen on playing Champions League football.
Arsenal fans, will Luis Suarez prove to be more hassle than he is worth?
