Liverpool and Ajax are continuing to be locked in negotiations over the sale of Uruguayan Luis Suarez this Friday morning, with both clubs hopeful a resolution can be made today.
There are increasing signs and reports in Dutch newspaper De Telegraf that Suarez is gearing himself up for the move to Anfield, but Ajax are holding out for a €25million fee from Liverpool.
Last night the Reds saw a bid in the region of €19million turned down by the Dutch club.
Following Ajax’s 4-1 victory in the Dutch Cup over NAC Breda on Thursday evening, in which Suarez watched from the stands due to suspension, manager Frank de Boer told press, “From the bottom of my heart, I hope on Sunday for our next match with NAC that I can call on him.
“Liverpool know what they have to pay, if they do it by the weekend then we will have time to take action.”
De Boer wants a deal finalised one way or the other in order for him to bring in Suarez’s replacement at the Amsterdam Arena.
Player agent Carrie Baird tweeted this morning, “Liverpool & Ajax spent last night in discussion, and will continue this morning.”
Meanwhile Liverpool have themselves turned down a £40million bid for Fernando Torres from Chelsea, with some believing the bid was merely a statement of intent by the Blues for the fans, rather than a serious bid.
The Reds are also still chasing the signature of Blackpool captain Charlie Adam.
Today could be interesting folks, watch this space.
