Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that Liverpool could sell Luis Suarez if the clubs valuation of the striker is met, reports.

Suarez has flown into Melbourne to join the Red’s pre season tour and could make his first appearance of the season in a friendly against Melbourne Victory.

The striker has recently stated his desire to leave Liverpool for a club that is playing regularly in the Champions League, with Arsenal and Real Madrid thought to be interested in signing the striker.

The Gunners had a £35 million bid rejected by Liverpool last week but are set to return to Anfield with an improved £40 million bid.

Liverpool have repeatedly stated that they will only consider bids of £40 million for Suarez and Rodgers admits that the club would consider selling Suarez if their valuation in met.

“The reality is that he’s a player who is very much valued at Liverpool and unless there’s any sort of offer that comes in that is anywhere near his value, there’s nothing to consider, and we haven’t had that,” Rodgers told the club’s official website.

Despite the Gunners interest, Suarez is thought to prefer a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid but Los Blancos are believed to only be willing to pay £25 million for striker, well below Liverpool’s valuation.

However, should Madrid sell Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli later this week they may consider making a move for Suarez with their nearly acquired funds.
