The Frenchman lodged two known bids for the 26-year-old, but to no avail and instead went and purchased Mesut Oil from Real Madrid.

The Uruguayan had demanded a move from Anfield during the summer transfer window, but has since settled his differences with the club and has gone on to become the most in-form striker in the English top flight, bagging 14 goals in his past eight games.

Wenger saw first hand the part Suarez played in the demolition of Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, and after working as a pundit on the game in his native France he admitted that he is still a huge fan of the player.

“I think that every defender in England hates playing against him,” Wenger said.

“He has a strong, provocative personality. From the information I gathered on him it appears that on a day-to-day level he is really easy to work with.

“Also that he’s respectful, he loves training, he’s an angel. He turns into a demon when he’s on the pitch.

“We all dream about having players like that.”
