Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has rubbished reports of a move to Paris Saint-Germain, per Marca (h/t Metro), stating he is fully focused on achieving Champions League qualification with the Reds.

The former Ajax man has scored 24 goals in 23 appearances this season, while setting up his team-mates to net on 10 occasions, per WhoScored, as he continues to grow in confidence as the Reds' goalscoring talisman.

The striker has also nurtured a formidable partnership with Daniel Sturridge this term, with the pair's combined 42 league goals helping to lift Liverpool to second place in the Premier League—just seven points off league leaders Chelsea with a game in hand.

Such a strike rate will, of course, put European football's elite clubs on red alert as the Uruguayan international's stock continues to rise, but with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Edison Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi notching 44 league goals between them for the French club, per WhoScored, Suarez's talents may be wasted in France.

Speaking with French TV, Suarez insisted he is happy to continue at Anfield and help the side return to Champions League football, per ESPN:

Right now, with my club, the principal objective is to qualify for the Champions League. It must be unforgettable to play a Champions League game at Anfield. That's why I really want to experience that.

The striker's importance to the Reds is clear for all to see this season, as Liverpool chase their first Premier League title after the league's formation in 1992.

His impact has had a telling impact on his team-mates, as highlighted by the rise to form of Sturridge and Raheem Sterling, who will both be looking to make England's World Cup squad after impressing for the Merseysiders.

But it's not just in scoring and assisting goals where Suarez's talents lie. OptaJoe tweets of Suarez' abilities in enabling his team-mates to score from 12 yards:

It will come as a welcome boost to Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers to know that the striker is happy to stay at Anfield for the long haul, after wrestling with Arsenal to keep their enigmatic No. 7 in the summer, per Metro.

Liverpool face a mixed bag of matches before the end of the season, starting with a trip to Old Trafford in Week 30, a ground where Suarez has bagged just one goal in his Premier League career, per SoccerBase.

But this time around, in excellent form as part of Liverpool's star-studded three-pronged attack, Suarez will be looking to ensure he's the man to guide his side back to within four points of Chelsea.
