Luis Suarez will not be leaving Liverpool in the near future, according to the club's owner Tom Werner. The 25 year old Uruguayan has been in scintillating form for the Reds this season, bagging 10 goals in 12 Premier League games, and Werner has pledged to keep the striker for the foreseeable future.

Werner said:

“He’s a beautiful player to watch and, as a Liverpool fan, I hope I’m watching him for many years to come. We made a long-term contract with him in the summer and we are going to see a lot of his play at Liverpool.”

Rumours abounded last week that Manchester City were looking to sign the lethal striker, but Mancini dismissed the notion, saying that with Sergio Aguero, Eden Dzeko, Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez in his ranks, they didn’t need any extra firepower up front.

Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Wigan at the weekend continues their unbeaten run to seven games and sees the club now on 15 points, only four behind Arsenal, a side they would most likely need to finish above if they were to make a return to the Champions League for the first time since 2009.

With Suarez currently there only striker, the club know that they’ll need to bolster their front line in the January transfer window. 17 year old wonder-kid Raheem Sterling also impressed at the weekend, and Brendan Rodgers is believed to have offered the youngster £30,000 a week to keep him at Anfield.
