Paris Saint Germain and Monaco are both interested in Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, according to SportsDirect News.

Suarez could become the subject of a French bidding war. PSG and Monaco both have a lot of money to spend this summer and want to make a statement to the rest of Europe by buying the Uruguay striker.

Newly-rich Monaco have already spent over £100m this transfer window. They have signed Radamael Falcao from Atletico Madrid, Ricardo Carvalho on a free from Real Madrid,  plus Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez from FC Porto - all players were signed on big money.

Monaco's Russian owner wants to make one more big-name signing - and Luis Suarez has been eyed.

Paris Saint-Germain, perhaps jealous of Monaco's spending spree, want to make a big-name signing of their own. The Paris club are looking for a striker to complement Zlatan Ibrahimovic and they have been keeping tabs on Suarez for a long time.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is determined to keep the forward. Suarez is expected to cost upwards of £35m and the Anfield club are taking a tough stance on the striker's future. The Uruguayan signed a new long-term contract last year but has reiterated his eagerness to leave England.

Suarez has scored 51 goals and provided 24 assists in 96 appearances for Liverpool. He recently became top scorer for his country after his brace against Tahiti in the Confederations Cup. He is an exceptional talent with the ability to glide past opposition defenders, aerial ability and clinical finishing.

Monaco and PSG will have to fend off interest from many top clubs to land the Uruguayan as Real Madrid and Manchester City are both following developments.

Whichever club Suarez chooses to join this summer will be getting a world-class striker.
