Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has told Liverpool that the best chance they have of success next season is to keep hold of star striker Luis Suarez, The Express reports.

The Uruguayan hitman’s future with the club has been cast into doubt since being slapped with a 10 game ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic.

Both Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich have been said to be interested in taking him away from Merseyside but Enrique believes that whether they keep the 26-year-old over the summer will be central to where the club’s ambitions lie.

“Of course we want to keep him. He is our key player,” Enrique told the Liverpool Echo.

“We’ve not had a great season in terms of our league position but Luis is there as our top scorer.

“For me he can play in any team in the world. If I was a manager I would have him anywhere. Not only for his goals but for how his character is.

“He is the type of player like if you play with Messi: he does impossible things. He does something out of nothing.”

Suarez bagged 30 goals in 44 games across all competitions last season and will miss the first six games of the new season if he does stay with Liverpool.
