Liverpool has ruled out selling Luis Suarez to Real Madrid or Arsenal on transfer deadline day.
The Reds have been bracing themselves for last-minute offers for Suarez, who asked to leave the club at the end of last season.
But despite Madrid reportedly opening talks over a deal on Sunday, and Arsenal considering making a last ditch offer, Liverpool say their player will stay.
‘Luis Suarez will stay at Liverpool despite what offers arrive,’ the club said in a statement.
It means that Suarez will be forced to stay at Anfield until at least January, where talk over his future is expected to arise again.
The player, who only signed a new contract last year, has been reintegrated back into the Liverpool squad, but still remains keen to play Champions League football.
Suarez is expected to return from a ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic next month, having not played so far this season due to suspension.
