Luis Suarez has claimed that he would be happy for the Premier League to step in and provide a resolution to the row over his transfer between Liverpool and Arsenal according to The Independent.

The Uruguayan striker has made no secret of his desire to leave Liverpool this summer and had looked to be close to securing a move to the Emirates Stadium when Arsenal bid £40 million plus £1 for the player.

The Gunners’ intention was to activate a reported minimum fee release clause in Suarez’s contract but Liverpool have dismissed the offer and claimed they are under no obligation to accept it.

Liverpool are suggesting that they are merely obliged to consider the offer and inform Suarez’s representatives without having to allow the player to discuss terms with Arsenal.

The Gunners believes that Liverpool are in violation of Suarez’s contract but know taking the matter to court would be a lengthy process taking many months. There is also the underlying issue of how Arsenal knew about the clause in the player’s contract.

That has prompted the Premier League to mediate in the row, with Suarez reportedly also happy with that outcome.

It remains to be seen how Liverpool react though, with the Anfield club determined to hang on to their star striker.
