Liverpool legend Steve Nicol says Luis Suarez could command a fee of £100m should he have a good World Cup.
The Uruguayan international has had a fantastic season for Liverpool thus far, scoring eight goals in six appearances.
Brendan Rodgers will be happier than ever that Liverpool owner John W. Henry didn't decide to sell the striker to Arsenal in the summer, who offered the now infamous figure of £40m plus £1.
And Nicol, who made over 300 appearances for Liverpool through the 1980s and 90s, believes Suarez could prove to be worth much, much more than Arsene Wenger's valuation should he have a good World Cup.
“Liverpool owner John W Henry will do what’s best for Liverpool and, after the World Cup next summer, if someone offers £100m [he could leave],” he told talkSPORT.
Despite displaying some of his best form for the Anfield club this season, questions still remain over Suarez's commitment after he demanded to leave the club in the summer.
Real Madrid are still thought to have a strong interest and Nicol believes a move to the Bernabeu could be the reason for Suarez's increased effort on the pitch.
He is adamant, however, that Liverpool won't sell Suarez in January, regardless of the offer put in front of them.
He added: “The question is, what’s going through Suarez’s head? Is he playing out of his skin so he keeps this deal to go to Real Madrid alive?”
“I don’t believe he’ll move. I always thought, if Liverpool were in contention for a top four spot, they wouldn’t let him go. They will be in January so he won’t be going anywhere.
“There’s absolutely no chance Liverpool will let Luis Suarez go in January. I’ll stick my mortgage on that one. There’s no way it’s going to happen.”
