Kenny Dalglish is convinced that Luis Suarez will stay at Liverpool despite inevitable speculation over the striker’s future.

The 26-year-old has been one of the Premier League’s standout performers this season, scoring eight goals and making one assist in six games.

The Uruguay international’s future was a source of relentless speculation over the summer as he publicly stated his desire to quit Anfield.

Arsenal had a bid turned down, while Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain were credited with an interest in the striker.

And although Kop legend Dalglish is expecting Suarez to again be linked with a move away from Merseyside in the forthcoming January transfer window, the Scot is convinced the forward will stay at the club.

“There will be speculation about Luis Suarez leaving the Reds. There always is. But I don’t think he’s going anywhere,” Dalglish wrote in the Daily Mirror.

“He’s thriving in this Liverpool team and everyone at Anfield knows he is crucial to maintaining a [title] challenge.”
