Spurs Enter Suarez Battle With Arsenal

Tottenham are reportedly ready to fight fierce rivals Arsenal for the signing of Luis Suarez should Real Madrid pay the world record transfer fee needed to take Bale away from White Hart Lane.

Arsenal has been trying to force Liverpool into selling the Uruguayan striker who wants to leave for Champions League football.

Now it seems Spurs are ready to weigh in with a big bid should Bale’s transfer go ahead, according to the Daily Mail.

Despite reports from Marca on Tuesday that Spurs would make Real pay over £100million for the Welshman, it is widely reported that they will offer £85million instead.

Daniel Levy, Tottenham’s chairman, is known for his hard negotiating and will push the deal as high as possible, the article reports.

If Spurs are to sign Suarez they will have to overcome the fact that he wants to be playing Champions League football, giving Arsenal a distinct advantage in the transfer race.

The Daily Mail reports that Levy had been interested in Suarez whilst he was playing at Ajax and is keen to bring the striker to White Hart Lane and help soften the blow of Bale’s departure.
