Luis Suarez appears set to remain at Liverpool this summer after Professional Footballers' Association chief executive Gordon Taylor said it would be "impossible" for the Uruguayan to leave Anfield.
Suarez has been liaising with the PFA regarding a release clause in his contract which the 26 year old claimed had been activated by Arsenal second bid of £40m + £1.
The ex-Ajax forward has also accused manager Brendan Rodgers of breaking a promise made last summer that he could leave the club should they fail to qualify for the Champions League.
Liverpool finished seventh in the Premier League last season and failed to qualify for the Champions League for a fourth successive season.
Taylor said earlier this week that the clause in Suarez's contract did not obligate Liverpool to sell the player, and Rodgers remains adamant the Uruguay international is not for sale.
Suarez has threatened to take the case to the Premier League but PFA chief Taylor has warned such a step would delay his departure from The Reds until after the end of the summer transfer window.
"With the transfer window expiring, the difficulties of not only selling him to a competitor but also replacing him makes it practically impossible," Taylor told BBC Sport.
"I think it really muddies the waters to have buy-out clauses that are supposed to be confidential between employer and employee.
"Inevitably that gets out. The drafting of such clauses are far from straight forward.
"These are issues we are going to have to raise with the Premier League at our regular discussions."
While Rodgers has maintained Arsenal are yet to match the club's valuation of Suarez, American owner John W Henry has confirmed the forward is not for sale at any price due to the limited time remaining in the transfer window.
Suarez and agent Pere Guardiola are understood to have been informed that any move away from the club had to be completed in the opening weeks of the transfer window to allow time for Liverpool to find a replacement.
"Suarez won't be sold, even if a foreign club comes in, because we do not have time to sign a suitable replacement," Henry stated.
