Highly rated attacker Luis Suarez appears to be on his way out of Eredivisie giants Ajax as Premier League side Liverpool have shown an interest in signing the Uruguay international, if a report in De Telegraaf is to be believed.
The Reds are desperate to strengthen their squad in the winter transfer window following their disappointing performances in the first half of the season and they reportedly see the 23-year-old Suarez as the perfect signing.
The report suggests that Liverpool contacted Ajax on Saturday evening to discuss a possible transfer and negotiations continued on Sunday.
Champions League hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur are also after the services of Suarez, but the tricky attacker prefers a move to Anfield because of the presence of several Spanish speaking players at Liverpool.
Suarez’s current contract with Ajax runs until the summer of 2013 and an offer in the region of €25 million could be needed to lure him away from his current club. (Goal.com)
Some sources believe that any move for Luis Suarez could include a return to Ajax for Liverpool winger Ryan Babel. The Uruguayan international wants out and appears keen on a move to Anfield and is very much interested in a move to the Premier League having spent the last five years in Holland where he has been a massive success.
After Martin Jol’s exit from the Amsterdam club Suarez time at the Dutch giants appeared to be coming to an end and the prolific striker is currently in the middle of a seven match ban for biting an opponent. Ajax are in dire financial straits and they look likely to sell their prized asset in order to balance the books.
Liverpool could well do with more attacking options as they have been depending very heavily on Fernando Torres and Anfield Director of Football Damien Comolli has earmarked a move for Suarez as he sees the 23 year old the ideal strike partner for the Spaniard.
