Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke, a reported transfer target for Manchester United, has identified Liverpool striker Luis Suarez as his dream acquisition, as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi would be ‘impossible’ to sign.
Suarez has been in irresistible form for Liverpool this season, with the Uruguay international topping the Premier League scoring charts with 24 goals, despite having not made his first appearance of the season until late September.
Liverpool moved to tie Suarez to a lucrative long-term contract, worth around £200,000-a-week, shortly after he embarked on his impressive goalscoring run, but the 27-year-old continues to be linked with a transfer away from Anfield.
Atletico Madrid have been mentioned as potential suitors for Suarez, who has enabled himself to be mentioned in the same breath as Ronaldo and Messi, and Koke suggests the Liverpool star is behind only these two iconic figures in the game.
"I think Ronaldo and Messi are impossible to sign so I would choose Suarez, but we are talking about so much money,” Koke told Marca when asked about an ideal signing.
Meanwhile, it was revealed earlier this week by Liverpool owner John Henry that Arsenal had activated a release clause in Suarez’s previous contract during the last summer transfer window, but the Anfield club simply refused to sell their star player.
