Liverpool's Jose Enrique admits Luis Suarez could play for any team in the world but he hopes the striker will stay at Anfield.
The Reds are set for a summer of speculation surrounding their star forward, scorer of 30 goals this season, as they face another campaign without Champions League football.
A host of Europe's top clubs have been linked with the 26-year-old, who has three years remaining on a contract signed last August.
One of those, Bayern Munich, could be crowed Champions League winners at Wembley on Saturday and offer a glimpse of what may be available to Suarez should he look elsewhere.
So far the South American appears to be content with life at Anfield but Enrique knows it is imperative to Liverpool's fortunes that they hang on to Suarez.
"Of course we want to keep him. He is our key player," Enrique told Press Association Sport. "We've not had a great season in terms of our league position but Luis is there as our top scorer.
"For me he can play in any team in the world. If I was a manager I would have him anywhere. Not only for his goals but for how his character is.
"He is the type of player like if you play with Messi: he does impossible things. He does something out of nothing. I think if we keep him we will have a good season next season, for sure.
"We don't want to lose Luis because he is a top player but you never know. But if he goes, someone else has to come. Hopefully if that happens it will be a good player."
