Sundae Supplement: Suarez could be headed to London, Moyes eyes up Baines and Celtic to step up interest in Doyle

The Suarez saga takes another turn with renewed interest from the Emirates, while Tottenham enter the race too as they look resigned to losing Bale

Luis Suarez could be moving to London this summer, but it now looks like he may have two suitors that want to take him to the English capital.

Without a huge amount to offer bar money, Tottenham would need to make Suarez a very highly-paid player indeed, but are planning on having around €100 million in the coffers to lure the Uruguayan to London. He might still be headed there anyway however, as it seems Arsenal are prepared to fight fire with fire, or in this case money with money. It is advisable not to fight fire with money in other news, that just makes things worse.

According to The Metro, Arsenal are prepared to offer Suarez £160,000 a week and Champions League football (if they can beat Fenerbahce), and hope that Suarez and his lawyers will be able to convince John W. Henry and his lawyers that his contract stipulates he can leave under those conditions.

According to The People, Liverpool's transfer woes are not over however, after they now have to worry about Barcelona trying to get their hands on centre-back Daniel Agger. While David Luiz of Chelsea is still in the frame, Agger would cost a whole lot less, and that might be more favourable to the head honchos at the Camp Nou.

Meanwhile Spurs aren't finished in the transfer market yet either, as they plan to bid £15million for Ajax stars Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld, hoping to take them both to White Hart Lane according to The Sunday Mirror. Both players are also Liverpool targets, so Tottenham could end up with three of the squad that Brendan Rodgers wanted before the window slams shut in September.

Speaking of Rodgers, he has accused Suarez of disrespecting the club and stated that if he wants to get back to training with the squad, he will have to apologise to the club and to his team mates. According to the Mail however, old enemies Manchester United and Liverpool have teamed up for once to put a stop to player power, and both clubs refuse to let Suarez and Rooney dictate the situations any longer. It will be interesting to see how this one develops anyway.

David Moyes has yet to make a big signing at his new club, but will be hoping that at least one man he used to manage on Merseyside will be joining him at Old Trafford this season. The Manchester club are prepared to up their offer for Leighton Baines, while for their part, Everton are already lining up a replacement in Braga's defender Elderson Echiejile, who would cost in the region of £1.5 million.

Celtic have been linked with Kevin Doyle for quite a while now, and it seems that they are prepared to step up their pursuit of the Ireland international this week according to the Sunday Express. They had a very low bid already rejected by Wolves, but manager Kenny Jackett has stated that the club can't afford to keep him on their books, and Celtic are rumoured to be coming back in with a much more respectable bid of around £2.5 million.

In other news, Wayne Rooney will be allowed to join up with the England squad despite not featuring in the Community Shield today, Queens Park Rangers have been told that they'll need to fork over £6 million to get their hands on Jermain Defoe, Tottenham are looking at even more of Liverpool's targets as they plan to lodge a bid for Tom Ince of Blackpool, Sunderland need to up their offer to £2.5m for Charis Mavrias of Panathinaikos, Ian Holloway is hoping his budget will stretch to getting William Gallas and Darren Bent at Crystal Palace and PSG's latest addition to their striker collection, Edinson Cavani, has slammed Liverpool for breaking a promise to compatriot Luis Suarez.
