The Sunday Mirror says Liverpool are bracing themselves for Suarez to ask them to let him go when the Uruguayan striker flies from Montevideo to the club's training base in Melbourne this weekend.
Arsenal are growing increasingly hopeful they can do the deal and are likely to go back with an improved bid once they know whether Suarez reports up and the potential fall-out.
Suarez had his heart set on Real Madrid but the Spanish giants have not come in after making it clear that they are only prepared to pay £25m.
Arsenal players will welcome the striker's arrival.
There would be no problem with Suarez - despite being given punishments after racially abusing Patrice Evra and biting Branislav Ivanovic - in the Arsenal dressing room and they respect him as hard working.
