Is Liverpool striker Luis Suarez set for shock Arsenal transfer?
Liverpool star Luis Suarez is rumoured to be on his way to Arsenal after bookies William Hill stopped taking bets on the deal.
A series of massive bets made in Spain on the Uruguayan moving to the Gunners forced the bookermakers to close the market, with a spokesman adding that it “would suggest they have heard something substantial”.
The deal would fly in the face of Suarez’s suggestions that the British media are his primary reason for wanting to quit Anfield. It would probably stretch to breaking point the unquestioning loyalty shown to Suarez by many Reds during his various controversies.
The £25million striker was expected to join Real Madrid this summer, so the flurry of bets from Spain pointing to Arsenal as his destination is particularly interesting.
Can you see it happening?
