Liverpool latest: Luis Suarez is ‘the best’, Reds want Real Madrid star

A round-up of latest stories about Liverpool this evening.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has said that he dreamt of scoring two goals for Uruguay against England on Thursday.

The 27-year-old bagged a brace as the South American side got the better of the Three Lions 2-1 in their Group D clash at the 2014 World Cup finals.

It was Suarez’s first game in Brazil after recovering from knee surgery, and after leading his country to victory, he told Univision: ‘This is incredible.

‘I had told my teammates that I had a dream that I was going to score two goals in this match’.

Fellow Uruguayan and Liverpool teammate Sebastian Coates has hailed Suarez as “the best” player in the world.

Suarez won the PFA Player of the Year award for his performances for the Reds in the 2013-14 season and was easily the best striker in the English top flight.

And now Coates believes that he is the best player in the world – better than Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi of Barcelona.

‘For us, I say it is very important to have Luis on the pitch’, quotes him as saying. ‘He showed today he is the best. I think he is the best in the world. Luis and Edinson Cavani are two of the best players in this moment’.

Meanwhile, according to The Express, Liverpool are interested in signing Sami Khedira from Real Madrid this summer.

It has been reported that the Reds believe that a £15 million offer will be enough to prise away from the Germany international.

Chelsea and Manchester United are also said to be monitoring the 27-year-old, who suffered with injuries for much of the 2013-14 campaign.
