Liverpool 'make €23m approach' - but striker 'would prefer' Spurs move

Luis Suarez's protracted transfer to either Liverpool or Tottenham has taken a fresh twist after it emerged the striker would favour a move to London.

Both clubs are reportedly locked in a battle for the Uruguay star with Ajax initially said to be holding out for around €20 million for his signature.

However, the Dutch giants now appear to be after closer to €23 million for their prized asset and both Liverpool and Spurs seem prepared to stump up the cash.

“Ajax have received approaches from both clubs, although nothing is imminent,” a source told UK. “Suarez would prefer Tottenham at the moment because he is a family-orientated man with a very young child and he likes the idea of living in London.”

But, despite the 23-year-old having his sights set on a switch from Amsterdam to London, Liverpool are understood to be confident they can still seal a deal for Suarez this month.

The Anfield club are known to be in the transfer market for attacking reinforcements and Liverpool owners New England Sports Ventures are reportedly considering breaking the bank to attempt to land at least one marquee signing during January.

Liverpool are also thought to be after Valencia winger Pablo Hernandez and FC Utrecht hotshot Ricky van Wolfswinkel in their pursuit of more goalscoring options, although the club has since moved to calm ongoing transfer speculation.

"Will there be some activity? I don't know. I still don't know. It's a very complicated market in January," said Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli.

Meanwhile, Comolli's former employers Tottenham are also courting a number of other targets besides Suarez.

Reports have emerged this morning that Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is considering a shock move for Everton captain Phil Neville, while Manchester City striker Emmanuel Adebayor has also been linked with a switch to White Hart Lane.
