Juventus target Liverpool striker as summer transfer priority

Published 1 Comments

Serie A leaders Juventus have renewed their interest in Liverpool ace Luis Suarez, reports the Metro.

The Old Lady are big fans of the Uruguayan, and look set to get the bidding underway with a £25m offer for the former Ajax man.

According to Sportmediaset, Juventus boss Antonio Conte sees Suarez as the perfect foil for another striker coming into the Juventus side this summer - Fernando Llorente.

Beppe Marotta, the director general at Juventus, confirmed over the weekend that Juventus have ended their interest in re-signing former player Zlatan Ibrahimovic due to concerns over both his age and wage demands.

Juve have also failed in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, who has signalled his intention to link up with Bayern Munich-bound Pep Guardiola in Germany.

The ex-Barcelona chief is also a big fan of Liverpool's number seven, but Juventus' interest is real and they're willing to push the Champions League quarter-finalists all the way for his signature. 

Juventus see 26-year-old Suarez, who is one of the favourites to be named PFA Player of the Year, as an affordable and viable option, and Suarez could be tempted to bring an end to his controversial stint in England if Juventus firm up their interest.
