Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is wanted by mega-rich Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain, reports talkSPORT.

Billionaire owner Nasser Al-Khelafi, who is also chairman of Qatar Sports Investment, has expressed his desire to bring a number of high-profile stars to the French capital.

As PSG look to re-establish themselves as a European force, Al-Khelafi has outlined the club's plans to sign Suarez and Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain.

The Uruguayan striker has made a huge impact since arriving at Anfield, netting 10 goals in 34 Liverpool appearances, but has also commanded a number of negative headlines which culminated in an eight match ban after being found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish has stood by Suarez throughout, and insists he has a bright future at Liverpool.

However, in an interview with French magazine ExtraTime, Al-Khelafi said: "We are already looking at the market for next season. We have clear targets in mind.

"It is true that we want Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain. [But] our real short-term targets are to win the Champions League and find a new Messi."

Liverpool will want to keep hold of Suarez, but the South American may be tempted to make a fresh start after the recent hounding he has received in the English press.
