Chief has no doubts Suarez will stay with Reds.
Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre has said that is positive that star striker Luis Suarez will still be at the club by the time September roles around, Sky Sports reports.
Arsenal have made their interest known with two generous bids, but both of which have been rejected and the Uruguayan has since returned to pre season training with the Anfield club.
“We’ve got Luis Suarez in our squad, he’ll have trained today and he’s working hard,” said Ayre, who added there have been no offers from abroad for the player.
“Despite what people think we’ve not had an intention of selling Luis, we’ve never said we want to sell Luis.
“He continues to work hard and train hard for Liverpool. That will continue and I’ll expect him to be here at the start of the season.”
Ayre confirmed Arsenal’s two bids but said: “It’s not something we’re interested in and, as our fans would expect, we rejected both. The player is not available for sale – that’s where we are and that’s where we’ll stay
“I wish I had £1 for everyone that’s stopped me in the street saying ‘make sure Luis stays’. That’s what we’re doing.”
Suarez was given some extra time off due to his involvement in Uruguay’s Confederations Cup campaign earlier in the summer but made it to Australia with the rest of the squad soon after.
“I don’t think his demeanour’s changed – he’s been a professional throughout. It’s just business as usual.
“Luis was on the back end of tour with us. He joined us in Melbourne, and seeing the fantastic support and adulation, nobody will know more than Luis how much he’s loved by this football club.
“I’m sure he’s going to stay – that’s always been our ambtion and that’s what we expect to achieve.”
