Luis Suarez: Michael Owen 'unsure' about Suarez joining Arsenal

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen says he is "unsure" as to why Luis Suarez would choose to join Arsenal, as it would not be a "big jump" for his career.

The Uruguayan plans to submit a transfer request this week if a move to Arsenal is blocked, after telling newspapers he was promised a transfer this summer if Liverpool did not qualify for the Champions League.

Owen believes Suarez "hasn't got a huge affinity" with Liverpool, despite the fact the Reds have "stood by him" throughout his time at Anfield.
