Arsenal's Luis Suarez bid 'on standby', says Arsene Wenger

The 26-year-old Luis Suarez says he cannot afford to spend another season without playing in the Champions League, but Arsenal are running out of time to include him in their squad for a play-off tie later this month, as squad lists must be registered with European governing body UEFA by August 12.

London: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said on Wednesday that his side's interest in Luis Suarez was "on standby", after the unsettled striker called on Liverpool to let him leave.

Arsenal have seen two offers for Suarez rejected by Liverpool, the latter a bid of £40,000,001 ($62 million, 46.6 million euros) that the London club hoped would trigger a release clause in the Uruguay international's contract.

However, in an interview published in British newspapers on Wednesday, Suarez said Liverpool had broken promises made to him by refusing to let him join another club.
