Gary McAllister believes Luis Suarez has already proven he was well worth the £24 million Liverpool paid to sign him from Ajax in January.

Suarez has quickly established himself as one of the most feared forwards in the Barclays Premier League thanks to his supreme movement and clinical finishing.

The Uruguayan striker has scored nine times in 22 appearances for the Liverpool, with his latest strike coming in Saturday's Merseyside derby triumph.

And, according to former Liverpool midfielder McAllister, the transfer fee splashed out in order to bring Suarez to Anfield represents quite snip.

"For me, Suarez is a fantastic player," McAllister told talkSPORT. "He's looked great value at £24-25 million."


McAllister, meanwhile, has also had his say on Liverpool's summer acquisitions Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing, while the Scot has backed Andy Carroll to come good.

“Stewart Downing has done particularly well and, of the new singings, he’s done the best," he added.

“It’s going to take time for Andy Carroll and Jordan Henderson. The expectations at Liverpool will be a surprise for them.

“They’re young, they’ve just moved away from home for the first time and there’s a lot of pressure on them. They’re good players though.”
