Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has dismissed the suggestion that he is ready to leave in the summer and has insisted that he wants to help the club achieve Champions League football.
Suarez has been a revelation for the Reds this season and has slowly started to win over his doubters with a string of superb performances that have seen him competing with Robin van Persie for the title of top scorer in the Premier League.
However, while Suarez has excelled, Liverpool have struggled to find any consistency and have still not managed to beat a single side in the top half of the league. This has led to Brendan Rodgers' side spending the majority of the season in mid-table, though they have now climbed to seventh.
Two draws away from home against Arsenal and Manchester City have shown what the side is capable of, but there have been suggestions that Suarez may need to move in order to play regular Champions League football.
The Uruguayan striker was giving an interview to Spanish newspaper Marca when he was quizzed on his future and whether he would leave in the summer.
"We're not the Liverpool of old. We're coming out of a rough patch, but this is a transition period with a new gaffer and a different philosophy," said Saurez. "All we need are the results and to finish in the Champions League spots.
"My contract ends in 2018. My family is very happy here and I'm living a dream: playing for a club that every kid wants to play for. So we're content, for now."
While Suarez has admitted that he is currently happy at the club it would appear as though qualifying for the Champions League would make it even easier for him to commit his future.
The 26-year-old is certainly playing his part with 17 Premier League goals already this season. However, he admits that he is not looking for personal glory and that he would be surprised if he topped the scoring charts come May.
He added: "I like scoring goals, because I'm a forward, but that's not my objective. I'm a different type of striker."
