The Gunners, who made an infamous £40 million plus £1 bid for the striker back in 2013, are now ready to test Barcelona’s resolve to keep the Uruguayan, according to The Sun.

The Uruguayan, has struggled to repeat his electric form that he showed at Liverpool, following his £75 million summer move, and has scored just five goals in 16 appearances for Barcelona since returning from his biting ban in late October, against bitter rivals Real Madrid.

Andoni Zubizarreta, the man who brought Suarez to Spain, has since been sacked, and the 28-year-old has also fallen out of favour with manager Luis Enrique.

Suarez, the former Anfield talisman was dropped from the team for the recent 6-0 rout of Elche, where Lionel Messi, Neymar and Pedro were all on target.

Arsene Wenger, however, remains a big fan of Suarez and is still keen on the hitman.

Wenger would jump at the chance of teaming Suarez up with fellow South American compatriot Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates should he become available at a cut price.

A striker force of Luis Suarez and Alexis Sanchez would be the best thing at Arsenal since the days of Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp.

One can dream.
