Liverpool are being linked with a stunning €21 million move for Ajax striker Luis Suarez.

The Uruguayan international forward has been linked with a string of clubs across Europe amidst rumours the Dutch giants will cash in on the player, and Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson is one of the parties thought to be interested in the player.

Hodgson is thought to have targeted a striker as his number one priority in January, with an attacking foil for Fernando Torres the main aim for the Liverpool chief.

Director of Football strategy at Anfield, Damien Comolli, is also thought to hold an admiration towards the player, and has given the nod over a potential €21 million move for the player.

The exit of Martin Jol from the Eredivisie outfit is thought to have unsettled the player, who Ajax were originally hoping to sell for a fee in the region of €36 million.

With mounting debts, the Amsterdam Arena outfit could be forced to accept a much lower fee, opening the door to Liverpool if they wish to move this month.

Spurs and Arsenal have also been linked with the player in the past, although neither of the Premier League outfits are thought to be considering a move at the current time.

Prolific for both club and country, the South American star is thought to be keen on proving his ability in England. Liverpool could provide that chance for the 23-year-old.
