Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to play 'chicken' with Liverpool over Luis Suarez's transfer. The Mirror says Wenger is determined not to raise Arsenal's £40m bid for Suarez - even if it means the transfer going to the wire.

The whole deal hinges on the £40m clause in Suarez's contract with the Uruguayan's advisers adamant that it allows him to leave Liverpool.

Arsenal have been made aware of the clause and the deal is now at standstill - and it could go right to the end of the transfer window with the two clubs set for a major squabble.
