Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler believes Luis Suarez will be remembered as an Anfield legend if he inspires the Reds to a title win.

Brendan Rodgers' side are in touching distance of league leaders Chelsea and could be top by the end of the weekend.

Should they win the league it would be their first title for 24 years, and Suarez would undoubtedly be seen as a key figure in the win.

With 28 league goals and counting, Suarez has been one of the league's stand out performers and his performances have been indicative of an exciting Liverpool side.

"If Luis wins the Premier League this year then he’ll be rightly classed as a Liverpool legend in my eyes.’’ Fowler said in the Telegraph.

The Uruguayan came close to leaving the club in the summer, with Arsenal famously lodging a £40,000,001 bid.

“Last season Luis was very good but when this happened in the summer, I thought: ‘oh no, this can either go two ways, he can stay and be the same player he was or he can down tools and go on strike’,’’ said Fowler.

“But credit to him as a man. He’s just come back and looks twice the player he was last year and that’s saying something because he was very good. A lot of credit goes to Steven (Gerrard, who spoke to Suarez). Probably the most credit you have to give is to the manager. Brendan (Rodgers) sat him down and said: ‘Listen, I know you have aspirations of playing in this Champions League but do us a favour, get us there, you be the man.’ And Luis has been absolutely outstanding.”

Recent reports have again linked Suarez with a move away from Anfield, with certain sources suggesting he has decided to leave the country.

However, with Liverpool seemingly able to offer Champions League football next season, the talented frontman may yet decide to stay.

And a title win may convince the Reds number seven further that his future lies on Merseyside.
