Red-hot marksman has netted six goals already in just five top-flight matches so far in this campaign. <a href=’fanatix://eventid/51c186dc034c7dfe27000068/’ class=’in-app-event-link’>Check in to Liverpool vs Fulham</a>
Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard says that he is concerned that key front man Luis Suarez will quit the Merseyside giants at the end of this season if the Reds have failed to qualify for the Uefa Champions League by that point, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The coveted Uruguay international has once again been in sensational form in front of goal for the Premier League high flyers so far in this campaign after Suarez returned from a ten-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in late September.
However, as a result of Suarez’s eye-catching displays up front for Brendan Rodgers’s in-form team, a whole host of big-name clubs are now expected to make a move for the 26-year-old when the winter transfer window opens again for business in the new year.
And while the England international says that he is not worried about Suarez leaving Anfield at the turn of the year, Gerrard does believe that if Liverpool are unable to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League come next May, and with it qualification for next season’s Champions League, then the Uruguay attacker will decide to quit the club for a European heavyweight.
“Luis is in good form,” said Gerrard.
“The team are playing well, so January won’t be a problem.
“But come the summer, I think depending how Liverpool have done will determine what goes through Luis’ mind.
“His goals, his performances and his form will be the key to whether we finish in the top four.”
