John Aldridge has warned Liverpool that they cannot afford to let Luis Suarez leave the club next summer.

The 26-year-old’s future was a source of relentless speculation during the last transfer window after he publicly stated his desire to quit Anfield.

Arsenal had a number of bids for the Uruguay international turned down by the Reds, while Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain were also credited with an interest in the player.

Suarez could once again seek a move away from Anfield in the summer should Liverpool fail to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League.

But former Reds striker Aldridge has urged Liverpool to do all they can to keep the forward at the club.

“I don’t think it would be a wise decision to let Suarez go,” Aldridge told Goal.

“I know that it will also depend on the player as well, but I believe he must continue at Liverpool next season. He is one of the best strikers in the world – we must never forget that.”
