Emirates Stadium side not likely to make third bid for Anfield foward.
After being linked with him all summer, Arsene Wenger is to finally admit defeat in the Luis Suarez saga after the Reds owner John Henry still remains adamant his best player is not for sale according to the Daily Mirror.
His decision to end his pursuit is not through his own merit but rather Liverpool’s willingness to hold on to the 27 year-old despite the huge £40million offer on the table.
Wenger has spoken to reporters telling them : “There is nothing to add to what I said already about the transfer of Suarez. If it will be done, it will be done in a respectful and amicable way with Liverpool.”
He later went on to admit, “To make a transfer happen, you need the agreement of three parties – the buyer, the seller and the player.
“We know what we want to do. The player, if I look at the statements (does) as well. Liverpool at the moment do not agree. If they change their minds or not, I don’t know. We’ll respect that.”
Even though it is Suarez they are being linked with strongest, the Gunners boss has admitted he does have other targets on his radar – Suarez is just one of them.
“We are looking at possibilities to strengthen our squad. Suarez is one of the targets. If he’s not for sale, he’s not for sale. We have to accept that,” Wenger reluctantly told reporters.
Despite the growing frustration from fans of the London club, it does appear the Gunners are working hard to complete deals without upsetting any more clubs – like they have done with Liverpool.
