Liverpool's captain Steven Gerrard has urged the unsettled Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez to stay with the club for one more season to help them regain Champions League status.

Gerrard says Suarez is the best footballer he's played with, rating him the world's third best player behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano R9onaldo, and he's launched a renewed plea for the South American to spurn moves from Arsenal to sign him.

Arsenal are believed to be preparing a renewed bid of more than 40 million pounds for Suarez, who has scored 51 goals in 96 appearances for Liverpool.
