Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted that should Luis Suarez leave the club in this transfer window, it would be almost impossible to replace the Uruguayan.
The controversial striker has persistently been linked with a move away from Anfield this summer and with just 11 days to go until the transfer window shuts, Rodgers has admitted it would be a tough proposition to replace the striker should he leave.
"There might have been a point a few months ago where there was time to do it but with 11 days to go it would be difficult to replace him," Rodgers said.
Suarez has been a producer of positive and negative headlines since his arrival from Ajax in January 2011 for £22.5 million but his ability to score goals is an attribute Liverpool need to retain.
Rodgers is still hoping to make additions to the squad after seemingly losing out on Brazilian Willian as the midfielder looks set to join Spurs or Chelsea.
"We are trying to get one or two more quality players in through the door. If we lose Luis at this stage it will be difficult to replace him," he added.
From his comments, it seems Rodgers is not completely satisfied with his squad at this moment and the Liverpool chief is clearly looking for options.
"We did some business early on in the window that was very good and if we can finish off in these remaining days and get some players in that can help us, it would end a very good window for us," he concluded.
Suarez scored 23 Premier League goals for the Merseyside club last season and will be almost irreplaceable but Rodgers has a young squad to build on with potential in all areas.
