Arsene Wenger has made Luis Suarez his No.1 transfer target.

And there is a growing belief at Arsenal they have a genuine chance of pulling off a sensational deal for the Anfield striker.

Gunners boss Wenger will go back with another approach this week, having already had an enquiry firmly rebuffed by Liverpool.

But Arsenal could yet face competition from Manchester City and Chelsea as Suarez’s position appears to have shifted as his agent Pere Guardiola looks to be ready to set up potential deals to other Premier League clubs.

Suarez is still believed to prefer Real Madrid but Arsenal may be willing to top £35m while the Spanish giants have yet to make a firm approach.

Arsenal have stalled on their move for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain to see if Suarez is available - but are still very much in for Higuain.

Higuain has been ordered to report up for the start of training today (Monday) by Real Madrid and new boss Carlo Ancelotti has not given up on convincing him to stay.
