Arsenal favourites to sign Luis Suarez this summer
Luis Suarez made a cameo appearance for Liverpool as the Reds beat Thailand 3-0 on Sunday, although the bookies are expecting the Uruguayan to complete a move to Arsenal before the transfer window closes.

The Gunners have lodged a £40,000,001 bid for Suarez which has been rebuffed by the Merseyside club although some bookies go odds-on that Arsene Wenger gets his man this summer and it has been reported that Real Madrid’s pursuit of Gareth Bale leaves Arsenal with a clear run to sign Liverpool’s forward.
Wenger is prepared to be patient when it comes to the acquisition of Suarez although Liverpool continue to be opposed to selling one of their prize assets, especially to a rival Premier League club.
However, with Real confident of landing Bale for £85m, it appears that the Spanish giants have cooled any interest in adding Suarez to their squad, with the former and Cristiano Ronaldo likely to forge a lethal attacking partnership while Karim Benzema adds another quality attacking option for Carlo Ancelotti’s men.
While Suarez might prefer a move to Spain, it appears that his only option could be a transfer to the north London club instead, despite the player claiming that a move away from Liverpool was down to the intrusion of the English media.
