Liverpool are reportedly in line to launch a double bid for Ajax duo Luis Suarez and Urby Emanuelson.

According to The Telegraph, the Reds have been monitoring both players and now it would appear they could be set to launch a €31 million swoop on the Dutch giants.

Liverpool have consistently been linked with a move for Suarez in recent weeks in their pursuit of more potent goalscoring options.

Earlier this week an Ajax source told that Liverpool have been in contact regarding a move for the €23 million Uruguayan striker and - although they have yet to lodge a formal offer - a concrete bid is expected to come imminently.

But Liverpool are expected to have to fight of Spurs for Suarez's signature and the 23-year-old would supposedly favour a move to London.

The source told “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.”

Conversely, €8 million-rated Emanuelson has hardly found himself at the centre of Liverpool speculation during the transfer window, but has reportedly been targeted as a potential replacement for Paul Konchesky.

The Holland international can also play in a more advanced role and would prove a versatile option for Kenny Dalglish in his quest to turn around Liverpool's season.

According to The Mirror, the new Liverpool boss will ask to be backed in the transfer market during a meeting with owners New England Sports Ventures this week and hopes to bring in a midfielder to partner Anfield hero Steven Gerrard.
