Luis Suarez should remain a red at Liverpool rather than joining Arsenal, according to former Gunner striker Ian Wright.
Liverpool have already rejected two offers from Arsenal for their star striker, who have said they are unwilling to let the Uruguayan go until a £50million-plus valuation is met.
“I’d welcome him at Arsenal with open arms,” Wright told BBC Sport.
“But if I was Suarez, when you look at everything, it does seem strange he would want to go to Arsenal. I would give Liverpool another season."
The Uruguay international has spoken about his desire to leave Anfield after wanting to play Champions League football.
While Liverpool have not appeared in the Champions League since 2009, Arsenal will be featuring in the competition for a 17th consecutive season this year.
“Suarez is a world-class striker and if he didn’t have all the baggage surround him, I feel the Barcelconas, Real Madrids and Bayern Munichs would be sniffing around,” said the ex-England international.
The Liverpool striker is currently suspended for the first domestic matches of the new season after biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic last season. The 26-year-old scored 30 goals in 44 appearances for the Reds last season and since arriving in Liverpool from Ajax in January 2011 for £22.7million has netted 51 times in 96 outings.
Meanwhile, reports surrounding Liverpool say the Merseyside club have put in a £21million bid for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa but have insisted he is not a replacement for Suarez.
