The agent of Matias Suarez has warned Arsenal they face stiff competition for the Anderlecht star. Arsenal chief Steve Rowley has made regular checks on Suarez this season.

But agent Jorge Cyterzpiler, speaking to Italian website Calciomercato, said Manchester United and Manchester City are also keen: "The player has attracted interest from clubs in England and Italy.

"Liverpool have been spoken about but both Manchester clubs are also watching him. Juventus also have a chance to sign him.

"In April I will be in Italy to discuss his future. In the summer he will certainly move on but Anderlecht won't let him go for cheap."
