Luis Suarez says that if he could bring any Spanish player to Liverpool it would be Andres Iniesta.

Suarez was speaking on Spanish radio show Al Primer Toque after both players had impressed in Spain's 3-1 friendly win over Uruguay in Qatar on Wednesday evening.

Asked which of La Roja's World Cup winners he would most like to see join him at Anfield, Suarez did not have to think long.

"Iniesta, I have no doubt about that," he said. "For the quality of player he is. I am an admirer of his and of good football."

The former Ajax attacker, who has 17 goals in 24 Premier League appearances so far this season but looks set to again miss out on Champions League qualification with the Reds, also spoke with reporters in the mixed zone after the game at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha.

He told Mundo Deportivo that he was currently very happy in England but did not rule out a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona in the future.

"I have a contract [at Liverpool] and I am very happy, my family is happy," he said. "[But] from here to the future you never know what will happen. The jump to an elite club would make me happy. Real Madrid and Barcelona always motivate you."
