Liverpool vice captain Jamie Carragher has said that it is vital for the club to retain the services of Luis Suarez. The Uruguay international has been linked with a lot of clubs in the summer.

The French club PSG have been one of the most vocal in their attempts to get the former Ajax man to Paris. Luis Suarez scored in the FA Cup semi-final victory over Everton, which has given Liverpool the chance to play in the FA Cup final against Chelsea. This will be the second final of the season for Liverpool in what has turned out to be an otherwise poor season under manager Kenny Dalglish.

Liverpool were expected to challenge for the Champions League positions this season, but they have been extremely disappointing, despite spending more than £ 100 million in the summer. Andy Carroll has been one of the major disappointments for Liverpool, while Luis Suarez has been one of the few success stories at Merseyside this season.

“I thought he was brilliant. Our best player. I wouldn’t swap him for anyone in the league. He is a fantastic player and I’m delighted we’ve got him and hopefully he will take that forward into the cup final. It is vitally important (Liverpool keep Suarez). I see no reason why he would want to leave. He is playing well so hopefully he will sign a new contract, which he is expecting to do,” said Jamie Carragher following the 2-1 win over Everton in the FA Cup semi-final. Andy Carroll scored the other goal for Liverpool, as they came back from being a goal down against Everton to win the semifinal match.

They will be facing Chelsea in the FA Cup final on May 5 after the London club overcame Tottenham in a highly exciting 5-1 win.
