Liverpool striker Luis Suarez flattered by interest amid Arsenal & Chelsea links

Unsettled Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has admitted it is good to know he is still valued by teams like Arsenal, but says there have been no offers for him yet.

Since his arrival in England in January 2011 he has been banned for racially abusing Manchester United defender Patrice Evra, castigated for diving and is only four matches into a 10-game suspension for biting Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic in April. He has also claimed he is being hounded by the British media. "They (the press) have given it to me in England but, like we say, I've given them stuff to eat because if I hadn't done anything then probably they wouldn't have been as bad. "But football is like that and you have to be accustomed to all that and it's good that the English clubs still want me." Real Madrid, whom Suarez expressed an interest in last month during a series of interviews which put his future at Anfield in serious doubt, remain favourites although they have yet to make any approach. Speculation about his future has followed Suarez for several months and he admits it does entertain him. Chelsea were also linked with a move while he said his wife told him Paris St Germain wanted him after reading some of the gossip. "It does amuse you because they (media) don't know anything," he added. "I think it was my wife told me that I am going to speak French (at Paris St Germain) with (compatriot) Edinson Cavani. She comes and tells me something different all the time. "Or when I'm having a chat with my brother in law and he says 'I saw Chelsea want Luis Suarez' and I say 'Ah yeah I see you're eating up what the press say. "I say to him they know more than we do and it's funny. For now everything is going well I am very calm."
