Jamie Carragher believes Luis Suárez is “too good” for Liverpool as Arsenal continue to be linked with a move for the striker.

The 26-year-old’s future has been a source of constant speculation in recent days after he made public his desire to quit Liverpool for a team in the Champions League.

Arsenal have so far failed with two bids to bring the Uruguay international to Emirates Stadium this summer.

And former Reds defender Carragher says that the striker is too good for both the Reds and the Gunners.

“Luis Suárez is too good for Liverpool,” Carragher wrote in his column for the Daily Mail. “He is one of the top players in the world, whereas Liverpool were only the seventh best team in England last season.

“His talents are greater than the stage on which he plays. Not only does he deserve to play in the Champions League, he should be winning it.

“Luis Suarez is also too good for Arsenal. In recent years, they haven’t challenged for trophies; they have not made an impact in the Champions League and they are no closer to winning the Premier League.

“If Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich wanted him, I would wish Luis all the luck in the world and staunchly defend him. That is his level; teams who have a great chance of winning the Champions League. That’s why I’m so puzzled by his determination to leave for the Emirates.”
