THE biggest transfer of the summer looks set to be completed in the next 48 hours, according to a report today, with Luis Suarez closing in on a move from Liverpool to Barcelona.

Suarez, who is currently serving a four-month ban from football, has apologised for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini, which seems to have quickened up his transfer.

Arsenal, meanwhile, look set to be busy this summer, and are being linked with a number of transfers in today’s newspapers.
