LONDON – Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has given his broadest hint yet that he is considering his future at Anfield, in comments that will send shockwaves through the Merseyside club.

Suarez, who is currently preparing for Uruguay’s World Cup qualifier with Paraguay on Friday, has suggested he will consider moving to a club with “more prospects” if the right offer comes his way in the near future.

The striker who is currently leading the Premier League scoring charts with 22 goals has been linked with moves to Barcelona and Bayern Munich, as the prospect of another season without Champions League action at Liverpool encouraging the 26-year-old to consider his options.

“I am very happy at Liverpool, but you never know in football,” he is quoted in the Liverpool Echo. “A player’s ambition is always there, the ambition of wanting to play in elite teams is always there.

“I’m in a world-class team, an elite team like Liverpool. We have to realise we have a new manager who is imposing a philosophy and a way of playing that the players are adapting to as best we can. We hope that it will bear fruit next year.

“If another team comes around with more prospects of competing in international club competition games, which is willing to have me, they are welcome. We would talk to the club, we would see if I want to go, if I don’t want to go.”

Suarez went on to claim his fiery temperament, which has often got him into trouble in the Premier League, is part of what has made him into one of the most potent marksmen in European football.
