Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says that he will respect Liverpool’s decision should they decide not to sell prised striker Luis Suarez.
Arsenal made a bid of £40 million plus one pound in what they thought was enough to match the Uruguayans buyout clause.
Liverpool meanwhile has insisted that that is not the case with club owner John W Henry saying that Suarez is not for sale at any price.
On hearing that news the Frenchman Wenger has said that if that is Liverpool’s stance then there is nothing Arsenal can do about it.
Speaking at a press conference in Helsinki, Wenger said: “There is nothing to add to what I said already about the transfer of Suarez.
“If it will be done, it will be done in a respectful and amicable way with Liverpool.
“I didn’t read (Henry’s) statements but we’ll be faithful to the way we want to behave.
“To make a transfer happen, you need the agreement of three parties – the buyer, the seller and the player.
“We know what we want to do. The player, if I look at the statements, (does) as well. Liverpool at the moment do not agree. If they change their minds or not, I don’t know. We’ll respect that.
“We are looking at possibilities to strengthen our squad. Suarez is one of the targets. If he’s not for sale, he’s not for sale, we have to accept that.
“Every club has its own way of dealing with things, we have our way and we respect all the other clubs.”
