Luis Suarez could be the subject of a bid from Roma this summer, according to Italian publication Il Tempo.


Suarez has been an instant hit with Liverpool supporters since he made the switch from Ajax last year but has had his desire to stay in England tested after a string of controversial incidents.


The Uruguayan forward has endured a tumultuous first full season in the Premier League and was banned for eight games after being found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra during Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United earlier this season.


His wasteful nature in front of goal at times this season has also added to claims he isn’t happy on Merseyside and has helped give rise to speculation that he could be ready to make a move come the end of the summer.


Amidst rumoured interest from Paris Saint-Germain, Suarez announced he was happy on Merseyside recently, while Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre revealed earlier this month that talks with the £22.7 million man had begun over a contract extension.


However Il Tempo reports that Roma and their American owners are ready to splash the cash and land some big-name signings this summer, with Suarez apparently at the top of their list.


The paper reports that £25 million has been set aside by Roma to persuade Liverpool to cash in and sell one of their most prized assets.


Roma are believed to be gearing up for a major overhaul this summer in an attempt to get back amongst the big time, although whether the Reds will be willing to sell their leading striker for a fee not much greater than they paid little more than a year ago is highly unlikely.
