Liverpool transfers: Kenny Dalglish optimistic about Luis Suárez’s future
Liverpool transfers: Former Reds manager Kenny Dalglish believes Luis Suárez could still remain at Anfield beyond the summer
Kenny Dalglish believes Liverpool’s want-away Luis Suárez could still remain at the Reds and give 100 per cent for the club this season.
The 26-year-old has grown increasingly disillusioned at the Merseyside outfit over the past couple of weeks after Liverpool rejected two bids from north London side Arsenal.
Suárez feels he should be allowed to leave the Reds to join a club in the Champions League, such as the Gunners, but Brendan Rodgers maintains the Uruguayan is going nowhere.
Dalglish signed the South American forward in a £22.75m deal from Ajax in 2011, and the former Liverpool manager is still hopeful the two parties can find a compromise.
“I know that positions have become entrenched and a lot has been said by both sides but I don’t think it’s too late for Luis Suárez to return to the fold at Liverpool,” Dalglish wrote in his column in the Mirror.
“It has already got to the point where Liverpool will find it very hard to replace Luis for this season, even if he were to be sold tomorrow. I think there’s still room for optimism about the situation as far as Liverpool are concerned – as I said earlier, I cannot see Luis pulling on a Liverpool shirt and not giving everything in his body for the club.
“I’d like to see the club and the player call it quits and try to thrash something out for everyone’s benefit. I don’t think it’s too late, but time will tell.”
