Luis Suarez poll results: Liverpool should reject £40m bid, say Independent readers
We asked you whether the Reds should accept Arsenal's offer
It emerged today that Liverpool have rejected an improved bid of £40m for Luis Suarez from Arsenal - and it would appear the majority of you think they made the right call.
After turning down the bid, Anfield owner John W Henry took to Twitter to make his views on the offer known, writing: "What do you think they're smoking over there at Emirates?"
While Suarez's talent is in little doubt - last season he scored 30 goals in 44 appearances - there are some other factors the Reds should perhaps consider.
The Uruguay striker seems to be a magnet for controversy; since joining from Ajax he has been found guilty of racism and is currently serving a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.
The 26-year-old has also said he wants to move to a club that can offer him Champions League football.
But while Liverpool appear to have made their mind up, we wanted to know what you thought...
