Arsenal take on Real Madrid for Luis Wantaway Suarez subject of a £35m transfer war.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is ready to spend big to land the bad-boy Uruguayan.
But Suarez, 26, who is serving a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic, is also wanted by new Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Arsenal already have a £23m deal in place for Real striker Gonzalo Higuain.
But Wenger has not pushed that through because he believes Suarez would be a better buy than either Higuain or Wayne Rooney.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers wants to keep 30-goal hotshot Suarez, who signed a new £120,000-a-week contract only last year.
But Suarez revealed in yesterday’s SunSport that he wants to play Champions League football.
Liverpool want £40m for a player who cost £22.8m from Ajax in 2011.
Arsenal have yet to make an official bid. But that will change this week as Wenger wants to team Suarez with Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott.
