Gareth_Bale_abArsenal have made a fresh bid of £40million plus £1 for Liverpool’s controversial star striker Luis Suarez.

The bid triggers a clause in the Uruguayan’s contract that means the Reds have to let Suarez speak to Arsenal if he wishes.

The Gunners have already failed with a bid of £35million plus add-ons for the former-Ajax star. The Gunners look desperate to sign a striker with Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney believed to be on their transfer wishlist.

One player does not look likely to be playing at the Emirates Stadium next season is Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain. According to the Daily Mail, the Argentinian has agreed terms with Serie A club Napoli, ahead of £31.8million move.

Reports coming out of Spain suggest that Real Madrid could use some of the Higuain cash to bring in Tottenham star Gareth Bale. It was reported in the Spanish press yesterday that Bale had handed in a transfer request ahead of a world record £85million move.

Tottenham moved to deny these claims and stated that they are confident that the Wales international star will be with their team come the start of the season.

The Mail also reports that Arsenal attacker Gervinho is set to move to Italy with Roma. The club from the Italian capital are believed to be readying a £7million bid for the Ivory Coast international. The former-Lille star has also been linked with a return to Ligue One with Lyon.

However, it seems that Roma are in pole position to sign the mercurial forward, whose inconsistency led to him spending the majority of last season on the Gunners bench.

Premier League newcomers Crystal Palace are closed to bringing in former-Arsenal attacker Quincy Owusu-Obeyie from Greek club Panathinaikos. The forward has spent time training with the Eagles and has impressed the Palace coaching staff.

Will Tottenham sell Gareth Bale this summer?
