Chelsea are looking to test Liverpool's resolve with a £40 million bid for Luis Suarez who has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid. Liverpool who insists that the Uruguayan is not for sale will be forced to at least listen to offers of at least £40 million as there is a clause in Suarez's contract to that effect. The Reds had earlier turned down a £30 million offer from Arsenal for Suarez who has made no secret of his intention to leave Anfield after a turbulent season at the club.
Brendan Rodgers, the Liverpool manager has already brought in few players this transfer window and it seems like Stewart Downing is not part of Rodgers' long term plans for the club. West Ham is looking to take advantage of this by making a bid for the England international after bringing Andy Carroll to the club.

The Armenian who is said to also be the target of Borussia Dortmund was missing from training recently because of the whole transfer saga involving him, his current club and Liverpool. ‘Yes, he’s a great player. I’ve seen him a few times in the Champions League,’ he said.‘He’s a very attacking, very young forward. We’re linked to him. I don’t know if he’s going to sign. I’m sure whoever comes in will be the right fit.’
