Emirates Stadium side move ever closer to signing Anfield striker.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is edging ever closer to securing a move to Arsenal this summer according to the Metro.
The 26 year old is reportedly ‘on the brink’ of moving to the Emirates Stadium after weeks of speculation about his future at Anfield. The Uruguayan has stated repeatedly his desire to leave Liverpool and it seems Arsene Wenger is desperate to land Suarez as he looks to improve his Gunners attack.
The Arsenal boss has been given the green light to spend £40m on the former Ajax man, which is an offer that Liverpool could struggle to turn down given the situation Suarez has left his Merseyside employers in.
Having made it abundantly clear he no longer wants to be at the club it would appear to make sense for Liverpool to make as much from his sale and could be keen to do so sooner rather than later, leaving Brendan Rodgers with enough time to bring in an adequate replacement.
Though his time in the English top tier has been filled with controversy, primarily due to two long term bans received for unsavoury incidents involving Patrice Evra and Branislav Ivanovic, Luis Suarez has been a massive success since moving to Liverpool in January 2011, scoring 51 goals and providing 24 assist in his 96 appearances for the club.
Arsenal could certainly do with a prolific spearhead for their attack as French forward Olivier Giroud struggled for consistency last term, managing just 11 Premier League goals. Lukas Podolski and Theo Walcott have been primarily used in wide attacking roles and as such Wenger could certainly do with investing in an established striking talent this summer.
