Arsenal bid £40m + £1 bid for Suarez

Following yesterday's article concerning Arsenal's transfer business this summer, they have made an improved offer for Luis Suarez on their £40m bid - by just £1.

Yesterday, Arsenal saw another bid for Liverpool star Luis Suarez turned down by the Merseyside club. 

The Gunners made an improved offer of £40,000,001 to The Kop club which was met with some anger from the club's owners.

Liverpool owner John W Henry baulked at the unusual sum of money and tweeted, "What do you think they're smoking over there at Emirates?"

Arsenal's offer was designed to trigger a clause in the Uruguayan's contract; stipulating that Liverpool must inform him of any offer over £40m, but do not have to accept it.

Although at the start of the summer many believed £40m would be enough to capture the player, Liverpool now value the player at closer to £55m - the same amount of money that Edison Cavani joined PSG for from Napoli.

Any formal statement from either club or Luis Suarez is yet to be made. But it is believed that Real Madrid would be the player's favoured destination, should it happen, over The Emirates.
