Maurizio Zamparini, president of Serie A side Palermo, says he would sign Liverpool striker Luis Suarez 'tomorrow', should the Uruguayan become available.
Suarez attracted widespread condemnation after refusing to shake the hand of Manchester United defender Patrice Evra last weekend, having served an eight-match suspension for racially abusing the latter.
However, the Liverpool Echo has since reported that Anfield chiefs have no intention whatsoever of letting Suarez leave the club, although speculation about his future continues.
Zamparini has certainly added fuel to the flames, after he claimed he would have no problem in offering Suarez a route out of Merseyside.
"I would sign him tomorrow morning – he's a fantastic striker," Zamaprini said, according to Metro.
Should Zamparini decide to formalise his interest in Suarez, then he may be able to test the resolve of Liverpool with Arab investors set to pump huge sums of money into Palermo.
