Arsenal waiting on Suarez and Liverpool settling their dispute, Wenger admits

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said the club have been left in limbo over their attempts to sign Luis Suarez from Liverpool, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

The Gunners have made two approaches for the Uruguayan, both rejected, with Suarez complaining that Liverpool have reneged on a promise to sell him to a Champions League team while the Reds insist a £40m release clause in Suarez’s contract is not worded to compel the club to accept any offers for the player.

Suarez could attempt to drive Liverpool to reaching an agreement with Arsenal by making a formal transfer request or asking the Premier League to adjudicate in the contract clause dispute, but if Arsenal want to play Suarez in their Champions League qualifier they would have to have the transfer wrapped up by 11pm on Monday evening.

Wenger however claims he is not aware of all the latest developments between player and club, instead insisting it is now down to Suarez and Liverpool to settle their argument. “At the moment the situation is on standby. I heard that [Suarez is considering legal action to force a move], but this is sometimes linked with things that you don’t know as a potential buyer, Wenger told Al Jazeera Sport.

That is the story between Suarez and Liverpool and I don’t know what has been said, what has been promised and what has been written and that is only Suarez and Liverpool that can decide that,” Wenger continued.

It is nothing to do with us. We have been told that the player wants to leave Liverpool and that is why we have acted. I really don’t know what will be decided by Liverpool.
