Police are investigating a number of death threats made by Liverpool fans to striker Luis Suarez, according to the Metro.
The controversial striker is reportedly having talks with Arsenal this weekend as the possibility of a move draws ever closer.
Reds' manager Brendan Rodgers' attempt to use the fans to assist him in convincing Suarez that his future lies at Anfield may have backfired, as people took to twitter to abuse the Uruguayan.
Suarez reportedly received numerous tweets to his personal account that illustrated in no uncertain terms just how angry some Liverpool fans were.
One user tweeted Suarez: ‘If by any chance Liverpool do accept a bid, and you move, I will find you and I will kill you.'
Another read: ‘Can Arsenal just f*** off. If Luis Suarez leaves I’ll hunt him down and kill him.’
Police are said to be taking the comments very seriously, and have let it be known that they are well aware of what has been written.
Meanwhile, Liverpool FC's managing director, Ian Ayre, re-affirmed his the club's intentions to keep hold of the man who finished as their top goalscorer last season.
Ayre stated: ‘The situation with Luis Suárez remains the same. It’s never been our intention to sell Luis.’
