Liverpool have rejected a bid from Arsenal for Luis Suarez and remain steadfast in their insistence the striker is not for sale.

Press Association Sport understands the English Premier League club made an offer in the region of £30 million (Dh164m) for the Uruguay international last week which was rejected out of hand by the Reds.

Despite the 26 year old this summer voicing his dislike of his treatment by the English media and suggesting a move to Real Madrid would appeal, the club have no intention of selling, a stance which was not even tested by an offer well below what is considered Suarez's true value.
