Liverpool Owner John W Henry Mocks Arsenal's Luis Suárez Bid On Twitter

Liverpool owner John W Henry has mocked Arsenal's impudent £40,000,001 offer for Luis Suárez on Twitter.

Henry, who rarely tweets, swiftly aired his reaction to the Gunners' second bid for the Uruguayan striker at 7.42 BST on Wednesday.

"What do you think they're smoking over there at Emirates?" he asked rhetorically.

The Gunners had a £30m offer turned down 17 days ago for Suárez, who has since said he was flattered by last season's fourth-placed team's interest.

Suárez's agent, Pere Guardiola, reportedly formulated the latest figure, believing a bid in excess of £40m would allow his client to leave Anfield.
