Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is confident he can fend off any interest in Luis Suarez.

Italian champions Juventus are reportedly ready to make a move for the Uruguay international if they get any indication he is not entirely happy on Merseyside, but Rodgers is adamant the 25-year-old wants to be part of his new regime and the club are certainly keen to tie him down to a new deal.

"He's really looking forward to being here and we are obviously hoping that we can get him on to another new contract. He's really looking forward to the new season," said the Reds manager.
