Liverpool striker move hits snag - clubs '£8m apart' in valuation

Liverpool could be set to lose out on Luis Suarez, say latest reports.

According to The Telegraph, the Reds and Ajax have been locked in negotiations over the potential sale of the Uruguayan but the two clubs are thought to be 'more than £8m apart' in valuation.

It was claimed yesterday that the Dutch club were asking for 'absurd' amounts of money for the 23-year-old and are currently to willing to be flexible on their asking price.

The Telegraph reports that Liverpool have tabled an offer of £12.5 million for the striker, but the Amsterdam club are holding out for a minimum of £20.9 million.

This is just the latest twist in the ongoing transfer saga regarding Suarez to Liverpool and the speculation is showing no signs of abating.


Suarez was quoted over the weekend that he had ambitions to leave Holland to join a bigger club but his teammate Demy de Zeeuw is unsure whether or not the Uruguay international wants to join Liverpool.

“I think he stays at Ajax. When you know Luis, you know he only wants to go to a real big club. He could have left Ajax so many times already in the past," he told

“Do I rate Liverpool as a big club? Of course Liverpool is a big club. But I don't know if Luis wants to go there. We hear a lot of reports, but he didn't say he wants to join Liverpool yet. I didn't ask him.

“It's not my business. It's his choice. We only can hope that he is staying and say goodbye at the end of the season with a price and a proud feeling.”

Liverpool have also been linked with moves for West Ham forward Carlton Cole and FC Utrecht sensation Ricky van Wolfswinkel in their pursuit of January reinforcements.
