Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will not increasing the club’s offer for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez according to The Mirror.

The Uruguayan striker looks set to leave Anfield this summer after publically declaring his desire to leave the club.

Suarez had hoped to secure a move to Real Madrid but it appears that the Spanish giants are choosing to instead focus their efforts on signing Tottenham’s Gareth Bale.

That has paved the way for Arsenal to become favourites for Suarez’s signature after the Gunners made a bid in excess of £40 million for the forward.

That is understood to have triggered a minimum fee release clause in Suarez’s contract although that is currently being disputed by Liverpool.

The Merseyside club claim that the clause merely requires them to consider the offer while Suarez and Arsenal insist the offer must be accepted and Suarez permitted to discuss terms.

The transfer looks set to endure until the end of the transfer window with neither club willing to shift from its position on the matter.

It has been suggested that the Premier League may have to intervene in the matter and resolving the dispute through the courts could take many months.

Arsenal are waiting to see if Suarez hands in a transfer request, which could force Liverpool into sitting at the negotiating table.
