Luis Suarez wants his future decided by Friday as the new Premier League season draws nearer, according to reports.
Arsenal is the club most interested in signing the unsettled striker, having already had two bids rejected by Liverpool.
Now it seems the Uruguayan is keen to get a deal decided by the end of the week in order to focus on the start of the new season, SportsDirect News claims.
The article says a source from the club has said: “Luis wants everything done and dusted by next Friday.
“He’s keen to move on, as people know, but he doesn’t want it to turn into a saga. He knows clubs are interested in him and he desperately wants one of them to make an acceptable offer soon.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that the striker understands the club’s position and the actions they have taken to keep him at the club.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Rodgers said Suarez is happy at Liverpool and is working hard in training despite knowing he cannot take part in the start of the Premier League season.
“It’s a story that can keep running but for me there is no new news,” said Rodgers.
“Luis is happy. He totally understands the club’s point of view.
“He’s in a difficult position in terms of not being able to play because of his suspension. He will sit out the first six games and he will miss playing football.
“But he’s working hard and remains part of the group. He needs to get up to speed and we will continue to work to get all the players ready for the first game of the season.”
Rodgers continues to remain unperturbed by the Suarez speculation and will hope to keep hold of the striker as the club prepares to challenge for the top four places this season.
