Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to make an improved offer for Liverpool's wantaway striker Luis Suarez. The London Evening Standard says Arsenal are set to increase their bid to sign Suarez as their attempts to buy Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain continue to falter.

The Gunners had a £30million offer for Suarez rejected by Liverpool last week, but still feel that he can be prised from Anfield this summer.

It is believed Real are not prepared to pay the £40m fee they think it will take to acquire him from Liverpool.

That is significant for Arsenal because while Madrid may now keep Higuain, it means manager Arsene Wenger will have less competition for Suarez.
