Liverpool striker Luis Suarez would consider leaving the club should an offer of Champions League football arise, the Uruguayan international has admitted.
Suarez has enjoyed his best ever scoring season in English football, leading the Premier League scoring charts with 22, ahead of Robin van Persie and Gareth Bale.
The 26 year old's form has sparked interest from the likes of Juventus and Bayern Munich, but despite Brendan Rodgers continually insisting Suarez's future remains at Anfield, a fourth consecutive failure to qualify for Europe's premier club competition emphasises his predicament.
"I am very happy at Liverpool but you never know in football," he said, according to 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."
The Uruguyan forward has entwined his superb form on the pitch with continued controversy off it.
An eight-match ban for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra has been following by continued allegations of diving, while a handball in the lead up to scoring during the FA Cup win over Mansfield Town was percieved by many as an act of cheating.
But as the form of the ex-Ajax man, who is preparing with his national side for their World Cup qualifier against Paraguay, suggests, Suarez is learning from his previous mistakes.
"I have a very strange way of playing football," he explained. "I'm my own severest critic and I realise when I make mistakes.
"There are times that I get yellow cards that can influence a game. I have improved and I have to continue improving.
"You can lose some things, but you can never lose the slyness, the passion that you have had since you were a kid playing in the street.
"If I didn't have the character that I have today on the pitch, I don't think that I would have become the player that I am today."
