Luis Suarez's protracted transfer to Liverpool appears to be nearing a conclusion.

Fresh reports today suggest the Ajax captain could be set to move to Anfield during the coming days as the transfer window springs into life.

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

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

And now, as reported by Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, Liverpool made a fresh approach for Suarez on Saturday with talks continuing into Sunday for the €25 million-rated hitman.

Ajax coach Frank De Boer has since admitted that Suarez has revealed his intention to talk to potential suitors and is now expected to enter negotiations with Liverpool.

"I've had a showdown with Luis," De Boer said. "I wanted to know what his plans are and what the future will bring. Luis is training hard. He told me that if a big club comes in for him now he is ready to talk to them. I've a back-up scenario ready."

Suarez himself was quoted in the Sunday Mirror saying that he wished to join a club with the ability to win silverware – something Liverpool owners New England Sports Ventures are hopeful they can promise.

"If I move I want to join a real football club where they play good, attacking football," said the 23-year-old. "I will decline any offer from clubs like Shakhtar Donetsk or [Zenit] St Petersburg where they offer you sacks full of money.

"I've an obsession to win trophies. I am a South American with the mentality to win."

Liverpool have also been linked with Bolton hotshot Johan Elmander and FC Utrecht sensation Ricky van Wolfswinkel in their quest to acquire a new partner for Anfield hero Fernando Torres.
