Arsene Wenger pulled out of negotiations for Gonzalo Higuain to pursue Suarez who was believed to have had a £40m buyout clause, however the Frenchman was unfortunately screwed over (for lack of a better term).
The Gunners missed out on Gustavo who opted to join Wolfsburg, and now the transfer window has spiraled even further out of control with Suarez becoming increasingly un-transferable.
Rodgers recently declared the Uruguayan must apologize to the Club for his actions this summer before he can begin to train with the first team again, after spending time training on his own.
According to ESPN, sources have confirmed that the striker did train with the squad on Friday and has apologized to his team-mates after arriving back from international duty.
It was evident that the Gunners were slowly making progress with the 26-year-old who seemed to have been forcing his way out of the Merseyside club, however another bump in the road has emerged in Arsenal’s 2013 summer transfer window.

If the report is in fact true, Wenger’s options are increasingly thinning out. Suarez may now remain with the Reds who have been resilient to selling their star and with Rooney likely head to Chelsea, there are barely any other options in the market. Higuain should’ve been a done deal, but once again Gooners may be left without a superstar striker.
