Luis Suarez Transfer Saga: Arsenal Bid £40m Plus £1 to Activate Clause to Enter Talks

Arsenal have triggered a clause in Luis Suarez’s contract to enter transfer talks with the striker after bidding £40million plus £1 for the footballer, according to The Guardian newspaper.

Under the terms of Suarez’s contract with Liverpool, the club must alert Suarez if any club bids above £40million for the player. And now that Arsenal have triggered the bid to enter talks, it’s now up to Luis Suarez to decide whether he wants to talk to the North London club or not.

Suarez has spoken about his dislike of the British media and the Football Association as the root of his disillusionment, so it’ll be interesting to see what Suarez’s next move is.

Even if Suarez enters talks with Arsenal, there’s no guarantee that Liverpool will accept a bid of £40,000,001 for Suarez. Indications are that they value the player at £50million or greater.

All summer long, soccer fans and journalists have been waiting for a statement of intent from Arsenal. And this is a massive one from them. With an improved side as they have now, the missing pieces they need are a reliable back-up to Jack Wilshere and a clinical striker. With Suarez, they would be one giant step closer to greater success.

What do you think? If you’re an Arsenal supporter, would you want Luis Suarez playing at your club? And no matter who you support, would you sign for Arsenal if you were Suarez? Have your say in the comments section below.
