Suarez closer to Reds switch

Published Add your comment

Luis Suarez is set to complete his transfer to Liverpool on Monday after he passed his medical and agreed terms with the club.

The Reds have announced that all necessary medical checks have been carried out on the Ajax striker, with a statement on their website confirming: "Luis Suarez has successfully passed his medical and personal terms with the player have been agreed. We expect to complete the remainder of the paperwork tomorrow."

The 24-year-old, who has scored 111 goals in 159 games for Ajax, is expected to move to Anfield for a fee of £22.8million and will be Kenny Dalglish's first signing since becoming manager for a second time.

It remains to be seen whether he will arrive as a partner for Fernando Torres, though, with Chelsea still to reveal whether or not they will make a second bid for the wantaway Spaniard.

The Barclays Premier League champions had a bid for the 26-year-old rejected last week, with Torres handing in a transfer request the day after.

The club rejected that while Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti was coy on the matter on Saturday, saying: "I don't know, we will have to wait. There is no change."
