The 19-year-old forward has been part of the set-up at Anfield since 2010, but he has had to be patient in his efforts to earn senior recognition.

Brendan Rodgers has offered him first team opportunities since taking to the managerial hot-seat, and Suso has responded with a number of assured displays.

His potential has since been rewarded with a new contract and recognition from the Spain U21 side, and the talented teenager admits things could not have gone any better for him over recent months.

"I feel like I a dreaming right now," Suso told the Liverpool Echo.

"I couldn't have believed this would all happen in such a short period.

"Things have happened really quick for me. From being with the reserves, to playing for the first team in the Europa League and then playing in the Premier League.

"I am playing for the first team every game now and lining up with massive players every week - it's been brilliant."

Important

He added: "To get called up by Spain U21s was also special but the most important thing for me that has happened was signing the new contract.

"It means I'll be here for this season and two more after that. I always wanted to stay here and play for this club for a long time. Signing the contract was a great moment for me.

"This has been the best year ever for me so far. I hope it keeps going like this."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
