Stewart Downing hopes Liverpool management can convince Luis Suarez to stay.

Downing is desperately hoping the Londoners refuse to meet the Merseysiders’ £55million valuation.

He said: “It's so important for us to keep hold of him as Luis is one hell of a player.

“He's had some good discussions with the manager which will remain private. For us as players nothing changes. He's still the same player and he's a great lad to have around the place.

“He gets on well with all the lads.

“Luis knows we all want him to stay. It’d be so disappointing to lose him.”
