Football: Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard tells unsettled Luis Suarez to snub Arsenal
LONDON (REUTERS) - Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has urged Luis Suarez to shun suitors Arsenal, saying a move to their Premier League rivals would not represent a step up for the unsettled Uruguayan.
Suarez has been the subject of two bids from the north London club, the second an eye-catching £40,000,001 (S$76.7 million).
Gerrard believes Arsenal are one of three clubs in a tussle for fourth place and a spot in the Champions League alongside Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
"I don't think Arsenal is a step up," he said in the Daily Telegraph on Thursday.
