Uruguay defender Martin Caceres believes Luis Suarez would be an excellent addition to the Juventus dressing-room, though he claimed his international team-mate is happy at Liverpool.

Caceres, who bunks with Suarez when the pair are on duty with Uruguay, thinks the Reds striker has been unfairly treated during his time in the Premier League and believes he could make a big impression in Serie A.

"I've known Suarez for a lifetime," Caceres told Tuttosport. "We've been roommates in the Uruguay set-up for seven years. "He's a friend, a nice guy and a great attacker.

"A lot of bad things are said about him, but the problem is that he struggles to explain himself because he doesn't speak a lot of English.

"Juventus? It's true, we have talked about Juventus and he's asked me about the club without going into specifics about the players. I told him that Juventus are an outfit that wants to always win.

"He's happy in Liverpool, but he liked what I told him about Juve. After all, who wouldn't want to play for such an ambitious club? Let me put it this way, I would be happy to share a room with him at Juventus too."

Suarez has been linked with a move away from Liverpool after a difficult season saw him face heavy criticism for using a racist insult towards Manchester United defender Patrice Evra.
