Anfield boss keen to maintain Suarez’s status as a Liverpool player.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has looked to put off potential suitors for Luis Suarez by insisting the striker remains ‘very much part of the group’ according to Goal.com.
Suarez has been part of a much publicised transfer sage over the last few months after the player declared his desire to move away from the club.
While out on international duty with Uruguay at the Confederations Cup, Suarez claimed that he hoped to secure a move to Real Madrid in order to escape the attention of the English press.
That claim has since been undermined after Suarez changed his reason for looking to leave to being motivated by a desire for Champions League football after it emerged that Arsenal were interested in his signature.
Arsenal have reportedly met a £40 million minimum fee release clause in Suarez’s contract but Liverpool are insisting that they are under no obligation to accept it.
Liverpool boss Rodgers is desperate to hold on to Suarez and is keen to persuade the player that his best chances of silverware lie with the Merseyside club.
That may not be enough though with the player reportedly on the verge of handing in a transfer request as he looks to force through a move to Arsenal.
