Liverpool are reportedly preparing a final offer to sign Luis Suarez as the Saturday deadline approaches.
Whilst the transfer window will remain open until Monday, Ajax have told Liverpool they have until the opening day of the weekend to make their move for Suarez and meet their demands for the player.
The Dutch giants are thought to want in the region of £30 million, and have claimed that Liverpool lack 'respect' over their opening offer for the Uruguayan forward.
Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf claims the player has demanded a move to Merseyside, as re-produced on Goal.com, and that he is 'no longer motivated' to represent the Godenzonen.
It is thought that Liverpool will have to offer at least £21 million to prize the 24-year-old to Anfield, and manager Frank de Boer has made it clear that they will not drop their valuation to allow the player to leave.
“We don't want to lose him. Liverpool know what they have to pay and we are sticking to our guns," said de Boer.
“He thinks Liverpool are a good club, but he understands our decision to hold on to him.”
Kenny Dalglish is keen to add an attacking foil for Fernando Torres, and the new Liverpool boss made it his priority to sign a striker after taking the position at the start of the month.
Damien Comolli, director of football strategy at Anfield, is in agreement that Suarez is the ideal man for Liverpool and the pair will look to come to an agreement with the Amsterdam Arena outfit before the transfer window closes.
