Liverpool have a '50-50' chance of completing a deal for Luis Suarez, according to Ajax boss Frank De Boer.
The former Dutch international and Godenzonen chief was speaking earlier today about the Reds' interest in the striker, claiming that Liverpool had a delegation in Amsterdam and were preparing a final offer for the player.
"Liverpool has a major delegation to Amsterdam to negotiate Suarez. I think the chances are 50-50 that Suarez continues with us," said the manager.
"They know what we want for Suarez. Luis is gone when they pay that amount."
Kenny Dalglish spoke about the difficulties of landing player in January, but the Merseysiders appear to have pushed the boat out in their efforts to secure the signature of the Uruguayan international.
"I expected them to come with a higher bid. If you compare the 15million euros (£12.9million) Liverpool want to pay for Suarez with other transfers you can imagine that it's far too low for us," De Boer finished.
Recent reports claim Suarez is keen to make the move to the Barclays Premier League, with the Daily Mail reporting the striker has 'begged' to join the Reds.
