Liverpool owner firm on Suarez

Liverpool owner John Henry has insisted that the club “are not going to sell” Luis Suarez, the Mirror understands.

Arsenal have so far had two offers for the Uruguay international rejected by the Reds, and are reportedly considering a third, British record transfer bid after the players words in recent weeks appeared to make his position at Anfield untenable.

However, Henry has rejected claims that his club will part company with the 26 year old.

He said: “I’m unequivocal that we won’t sell to Arsenal, whatever the bid is. He won’t be sold even if a foreign club come in because we do not have time to sign a suitable replacement.”

Meanwhile, Gervinho has completed his move to Serie A side Roma, according to the Mirror.

The Ivory Coast international failed to meet expectations during his time at the Emirates, with the forward scoring just nine goals in forty-six league appearances.

He is now reunited with manager Rudi Garcia, the man who was in charge during arguably the 26 year olds best spell in 2011, where together they won the Ligue 1 title with Lille.

Finally, the Gunners have been handed a tough draw in the Champions League play-offs.

They will face Fenerbache, despite the Turkish side waiting for a final ruling from the Court of Arbitration for Sport over whether they will in fact be allowed to feature in the competition proper this season after being banned for match fixing, the Mirror understands.
