Rodgers is still negotiating with want-away Suarez.
Brendan Rodgers has admitted that he is talking to striker Luis Suarez every day to try and convince the Uruguayan to stay at Liverpool and not move to Arsenal or Real Madrid.
The manager is desperate to keep hold of the Reds’ top-scorer from last season after Suarez asked for a move away from Anfield.
“We communicate in some way nearly every day either through text or conversations,” Rodgers told talkSPORT.
“Over the course of the last few months and towards the end of the season there has been a lot of speculation with Luis, but the fact is it remains the same.
“We value the player. He had a terrific season for us last year and showed his qualities.
“Luis is a real competitor, a real winner. He wants Liverpool to do so well but, like every player, every manager, and more importantly every football club, they want to be working at the very highest level.
“At the minute he is on a break, he is relaxing with his family. We are in constant communication. He has got three years left on his contract, we don’t want to sell him, and we hope everything will be fine for the summer.”
Having scored 23 Premier League goals last season and impressing with several world-class performances for Liverpool, Rodgers is understandably keen to keep hold of his hit-man.
The Uruguay international has been linked with big money moves to both Arsenal and Madrid in recent times, but the Merseyside club will do all they can to make sure Suarez stays.
The 26-year-old was a £23m acquisition from Ajax two-and-a-half years ago, during the same January transfer window when Andy Carroll arrived at the club for £35m.
Since then Suarez has netted 51 goals in 96 games for Liverpool and is their second most highly paid player behind captain Steven Gerrard.
