The Reds forward scored his 14th Premier League goal of the season, as well as making two further strikes, in a 4-1 victory over West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday.

Liverpool are currently second in the table, and Reds boss Rodgers believes the Uruguay international is priceless to the 18-time English champions.

“I don’t think you can put a price on him and I wouldn’t want to,” Rodgers said.

“He has two and a half years here left on his contract and if you look at his consistency and how he is playing, at this moment in time, he is up there with the best players in the world.

“Most teams in the world would want Luis Suarez. I wouldn’t swap Suarez for anyone. I get the chance to work with him every day and what he gives is a relentless desire.

“When you have that, you don’t want to let him go. It has been a real privilege to work with him. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing. He is a very humble man. Beneath it all, he is a real good guy who is a true professional.”
