Real Madrid target January Suarez bid

Real Madrid will renew their interest in Liverpool and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez in January, reports the Daily Mirror.

The La Liga giants were reportedly keen to sign Suarez in the summer but were subsequently held up by the delay in the Gareth Bale transfer.

Carlo Ancelotti was keen to sign a new striker in the summer after losing Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli, leaving Karim Benzema as their only senior striker.

Real Madrid are willing to use the entire £42m they received from Arsenal for Mesut Ozil in a bid to tempt Liverpool in to selling their star.

Arsenal failed in their attempts to sign Suarez after seeing their £40m plus £1 bid rejected after believing it would activate a release clause in the player's contract.

That turned out to be false and Arsene Wenger failed to go back in for another bid after officials at Anfield made it clear they would not sell to a Premier League rival.

Instead, Wenger concentrated efforts on signing Ozil, which finally went through on deadline day in a club record deal.

It had been reported by the same paper that Wenger was preparing another big move in January with Suarez remaining in his sights.

However, with Suarez believed to prefer a move out of England, it would be tough going to keep him out of Ancelotti's clutches should he come in for the striker.
