Transfer Balls – Luis Suarez: Liverpool expects, Arsenal wait and Alan Shearer fails

by | 6th, August 2013

THE Daily Suarez – a look at media reporting on the Liverpool striker:

First up, Alan Shearer in the Sun, now behind a paywall. He’s talking about Gareth Bale, the player Brendan Rodgers say is worth the same money as Suarez is. So. Are they worth £100m?


“If someone is willing to pay that much then yes, he is. People don’t pay over the odds regardless of how much money there is in the game.”

No. Of course they don’t.

James Olley has news in his Evening Standard report:

Luis Suarez has not given up hope on moving to Real Madrid, raising the prospect of Arsenal missing out on their prime transfer target.

It is understood that the Liverpool striker is prepared to seek legal clarification from the Premier League in a bid to revive interest from the Spanish giants.

Contrary to reports elsewhere, neither Suarez or his club have contacted the Premier League despite differing interpretations of a clause in his current deal which Arsenal feel they have triggered with their £40,000,001 bid made earlier this month.

Understood by whom? The Mail?

Luis Suarez is prepared to take legal action against Liverpool in a bid to force through his protracted move to Arsenal.

The Daily Mirror told its readers:

Luis Suarez is ready to tell Liverpool that he wants to join Arsenal, writes John Cross

Arsenal player Mikel Arteta says big-name players will arrive at Arsenal:

“I am convinced but the great players normally come at the end of the transfer window.”

At what price? ESPN:

Suarez has yet to hand in a formal transfer request, while Arsenal are widely believed to have been told they can have him for £50 million, a price they are not so far willing to pay, especially as there seems little interest in the player from elsewhere.

Meanwhile, Liverpool fans want him to stay. This in the Telegraph:

Liverpool striker Luis Suárez was cheered by fans at an open training session at Anfield but remained reluctant to acknowledge the support he was given.

Suarez might not know what’s doing but he’s not working as an agent for other players. The Express reports:

West Brom sign Diego Lugano after recommendation from Luis Suarez

More every day…
