Arsenal offered chance to sign Suarez for £14m

Arsenal offered chance to sign Suarez for £14m Barcelona have offered Arsenal the chance to sign Denis Suarez for £14m in the January transfer window. According to The BBC, Barcelona have told Arsenal that they can have Suarez if they match their £14m valuation of the midfielder. Reports earlier this week claimed that Suarez is keen to move to London, with Arsenal and Chelsea being his preferred choices. A number of clubs are thought to be interested in signing him, but Suarez is set on a transfer to the Premier League. Unai Emery is said to be a fan of Suarez and would like to bolster his midfield options next month. The 24-year-old could now be set for a move to The Emirates if Arsenal take Barcelona up on their offer. Valencia and Milan are also said to be interested in Suarez, although he would use them as a last resort.

Margot Robbie was recently confirmed at the lead star of a forthcoming ‘Barbie’ movie, but if you feel like you have déjà vu then don’t worry – you have heard a similar announcement before.

Back in 2016, bosses revealed that Amy Schumer would be taking on the part but a year later, the comedian was forced to pull out.

The hunt was then on for another Barbie and upon landing the part, Margot joined the league of actors who’ve taken on a role publicly given to someone else.

Here are eight stars who’ve done the same thing...

In October 2012 she ditched the movie and it took nearly three years for Bradley Cooper – and subsequently, Lady Gaga – to hop on board.

How did Gaga do? Well, the Golden Globe win (for Best Original Song) and nomination (Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy) speak for themselves.

The singer and actress is also expected to garner Oscar nominations when they’re announced in late January.

Emma Watson and Miles Teller were all signed up for Damian Chazelle’s film, but both needed replacing when they pulled out for differing reasons.

At times, it seemed like half of Hollywood was playing hot potato with this film, as it struggled to find a director and lead star, while numerous other roles were tossed from actor to actor.

The most notable exit was that of Sacha Baron Cohen from the role of Freddie Mercury, who left after disagreeing with the fact the surviving members of Queen wanted to create a family-friendly film instead of one that showed all aspects of Freddie’s life, including drug use.

This is a list of actors who were considered for the role of James Bond, both officially (auditioned by the film producers) and unofficially (supported by fans and celebrities ) but did not play the role of agent 007. The separate list of James Bond Films details the actors who have played the role of agent 007.

How did he do? The ‘Mr Robot’ actor was roundly praised by critics, picking up a Golden Globe for his portrayal of the iconic frontman.

However, it seems Sacha may have been onto something when he departed the project, as many critics and fans pointed out that the film glossed over Freddie’s sexuality, while the Spectator wrote that scenes relating to his HIV diagnosis had been subject to “a callous rearrangement of the facts”.

Reese Witherspoon – ‘Legally Blonde’

Yup, really.

Barbie’s fellow famous blonde was almost played by Christina Applegate. The actress was offered the part but chose to turn the movie down as she was worried Elle Woods was too similar to another character she’d just played.

How did she do? Snaps for Reese. She just is Elle. Though we do wonder how Christina feels given the franchise’s huge success.

Cher’s frenemy could have been a whole lot different if Sarah Michelle Gellar had accepted the producers’ job offer. Unfortunately for her, she was all tied up with another film and Elisa stepped in, having initially auditioned for a bunch of the movie’s smaller roles.

Describing Elisa as “really funny [and] really beautiful”, he told Vanity Fair: “She’s got the wit and cynicism of Amber. You want her to be one of those characters you love to hate. But you don’t really hate her.”
