The 24-year old England international has scored 20 goals in 27 Premier League appearances since arriving at Anfield from Chelsea 12 months ago and Rodgers feels he can keep improving into one of the world's best.
"My opinion about Daniel has only been reinforced during the time I have worked with him," he said.
"He has a wonderful opportunity over the next couple of years to become world class. He has every tool, every quality to be a world class striker similar to Luis Suarez.
"He came on during the game last weekend and was superb which is a great credit to him on how focused he has been in getting back to full fitness."
