Luis Suarez has signed a new contract at Liverpool.
The controversial Uruguayan striker put pen to paper on a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Anfield club this afternoon, thereby quashing any rumours of a January exit.
Arsenal were heavily linked with the 26-year-old forward over the summer, making two offers – one of 30 million and another, a club-record bid, of 40 million and 1.
Both were rejected and, despite Suarez threatening to take his club to arbitration in an effort to force through a move, now looks set to see out the twilight years of his career on Merseyside.
The South American has been in menacing form this season since returning from a 10-match biting ban, scoring 17 Premier League goals in 11 appearances.
And his decision to stay at Liverpool will come as a hammer blow to the Gunners, who have until recently had to rely on Oliver Giroud as their only fit senior striker due to an injury pile-up.
Manager Arsene Wenger was hoping to bring in a new forward in January to take some of the burden off the overworked Giroud, but will now have to look elsewhere following Suarez’ snub.
