Anfield side ready moves to spend Luis Suarez cash.
Though publicly Liverpool insist Luis Suarez is not for sale privately they are ready to offload the Uruguayan for the right price, feeling that the 26 year old striker has burned to many bridges and his behaviour has become something of disruption at the club.
Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers has been told that should a club offer a fee in the region of £50m then he will be handed the lion’s share of these funds to invest in further strengthening his squad and as such the Northern Irish manager has started the process of putting out the ‘feelers’ with exploratory talks on the cards.
Rodgers is keen to bring in a creative midfielder who can ably link midfield and attack whilst also offering a fresh goal threat and with this in mind he has set his sights on Ajax playmaker Christian Eriksen, who is of course a long term Liverpool target.
Brendan Rodgers attempted to fill this slot by targeting Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but the Shakhtar Donestk man opted to join Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund, similarly young Brazilian Bernard was also briefly on the Anfield radar before he was brought in to replace the Armenian at the Donbass Arena.
Eriksen has helped Ajax to three successive Eredivisie titles and feels he has achieved as much as he can at the Amsterdam club, and whilst the Danish international can indeed enjoy Champions League football he is looking for a fresh challenge and Rodgers will hope to convince the 21 year old of the long term merits of joining a Liverpool side that are responsibly building for the future.
Christian Eriksen has scored 29 goals over the course of the last three seasons and chips in with more than his fair share of assists to boot.
