Wenger keeps mum on Suarez bid

AFP-JIJI

Manager Arsene Wenger refused to be drawn Friday on whether Arsenal would match Liverpool’s reported asking price for striker Luis Suarez, after a £30 million bid was said to have been rejected.

The Gunners boss declined to say if Arsenal was willing to stump up what is thought to be £40 million ($60.7 million) bottom line for the controversial Uruguayan, but hinted that a deal may not be entirely dead.

“We’re hoping we will be in a position where we can answer this question,” Wenger told reporters in the Indonesian capital ahead of a weekend friendly match.

He added: “As you know, the transfer period demands a certain air of confidentiality and of secret.”
