Chelsea have made Liverpool goal machine Luis Suarez their top target for the summer transfer window, according to the Metro.
Jose Mourinho held a meeting with Roman Abramovich to reflect on his January business as well as outline plans for the summer transfer window.
And the Metro, citing reports in South America, claim that the Special One has told the Russian oligarch to prioritise the signing of Suarez.
Mourinho has already made it clear to reporters that he will look to bring in a world-class talent in the near future as the form of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o continues to cause concern.
Meanwhile Suarez, 27, has had an unforgettable season for Liverpool thus far. He currently leads the Premier League scoring charts with 23 goals - eight more than second placed Sergio Aguero.
Those 23 goals have come from just 19 starts, averaging more than one a game for the Reds.
But despite his fine form and flowering partnership with former-Chelsea player Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool are still struggling to break into the top four.
They currently sit in fourth but have Everton, Tottenham and Manchester United breathing down their necks.
Chelsea are ready to test Liverpool's resolve with a £55m bid, which would break the record £50m they paid the same club for Fernando Torres.
If Liverpool fail to make the Champions League this season, Chelsea's power of persuasion will dramatically increase.
