A Uruguayan newspaper has quoted Suarez saying that he will remain at Anfield this summer.
Luis Suarez has rubbished claims made by a Uruguayan newspaper that suggested he will now stay at Liverpool, Goal.com reports.
El Observador quoted Suarez saying that he has “a great affection” for Liverpool’s fans and they had persuaded him to remain at Anfield.
However, speaking after Uruguay’s 4-2 win over Japan, Suarez has rejected those claims.
“I didn’t say it,” said the Uruguayan striker.
“Maybe someone else did, [but] the main thing is that I am here now with the national team,” he was also reported as saying by Kyodo News.
Suarez claimed in two recent interviews that he wants to leave Liverpool for Arsenal, having grown frustrated at the lack of Champions League football at Anfield.
The striker is currently training on his own following his comments about wanting to join Arsenal and also the lack of enthusiasm he has shown during pre-season.
Liverpool are refusing to sell Suarez this summer and especially not to a Premier League rival like Arsenal, despite the Gunners willingness to pay over £40 million for the talented striker.
Arsene Wenger has made Suarez his main target for the rest of the summer but is reportedly looking into alternatives to the Uruguayan due to Liverpool’s hard line stance.
