Suarez happy to stay in England

FOOTBALL: Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has welcomed interest from Arsenal and indicated that he still wants to leave Merseyside this summer.

The Gunners are thought to have had an inquiry rebuffed, with the Reds valuing the Uruguayan at £40m. He said: “It’s good that the English clubs still want me. Liverpool know what I want.” Suarez’s agent, Pere Guardiola, met with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers and managing director Ian Ayre reiterating his client’s desire to leave Anfield, though no formal transfer request was submitted.
