Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger revealed to the press that his club was about to sign Luis Suarez in 2013 when he was in Liverpool.
In an interview published by “Mirror” magazine, the French coach said: “Suarez was very close to move to Arsenal. We almost agreed on all the details. However, we received some wrong information that he had a release clause with Liverpool. I can affirm that he was about to come, you can ask him about that”.
He added: “He stayed another season in Liverpool and they have modified his contract. They promised him to be sold to another club outside England in the next season”.
