Luis Suarez has pulled out of Liverpool's pre-season tour of Norway with a foot injury.

The unsettled Liverpool striker, the subject of two bids from Arsenal this summer, was expected to play in the Reds' game against Valeregna on Wednesday, but is instead heading for a scan to assess the extent of the injury.

Suarez is thought to be considering handing in a transfer request, and has reportedly threatened to take legal action against the club should they stall his chances of securing a transfer away from Anfield.

In spite of that, the 26-year-old was expected to step up his pre-season preparations in Norway.

Suarez join Daniel Agger, Glen Johnson and Martin Skrtel in missing the trip to Norway to receive treatment.

Liverpool's pre-season concludes with a friendly against Celtic in Dublin on Saturday before their Premier League campaign kicks off a week later at home against Stoke.
