Suarez drawn by PSG interest

Published Add your comment

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has reacted to comments from Paris Saint-Germian president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, claiming the Ligue 1 side were interested in the Uruguayan, by admitting he would be tempted by the move.

Al-Khelaifi named Suarez, along with Fernando Torres and Gonzalho Higuian as a potential transfer target last week.

Despite the quotes being rubbished by Reds boss Kenny Dalglish, Suarez has talked up the possibility of joining up with international teammate Diego Lugano at PSG.

"Yes I could go to Paris, like many big teams," he said.

"There are many big clubs with such a reputation that want to build a top team and Paris is one of those teams that is recruiting to strengthen. I would love if (me and Lugano) could play together."

Suarez is currently having to rebuild his reputation in English football after being handed an FA charge for racially abusing Patrice Evra during a match between the Reds and Manchester United last October.

The 25-year-old then refused to shake the hand of Evra prior to the first match between the two since the charge last month, as the issue reared its ugly head once again.

The former Ajax forwards best chance to restore his reputation within the game may be to move away from the Premier League, but Dalglish has quashed reports linking his star man with a move away from Anfield.

"Nobody has spoken to us but it wouldn't make any difference," he said.

"If they (PSG) reversed the charges, the call would not get taken. It's the usual story."
