Reports are suggesting that Kenny Dalglish is ready to make his first multi-million pound signing in his new reign at Liverpool by snatching a Spurs transfer target, Uruguay striker Luis Suarez.
The rumour of Suarez to Spurs had looked almost certain to be made true but with Ryan Babel willing to go the other way in a swap deal, Suarez could be on his way to Liverpool with Babel returning to his former club.
Babel – on the whole, a failure at Anfield given his talent – has almost pleaded to leave Liverpool and will take a pay cut to push the deal through. And with Suarez, making a name for himself at last year’s World Cup with his goals, performances and a certain infamous handball, earning a reputation as a goal machine in the Dutch league (but let’s face it, who hasn’t? Remember Alfonso Alves?), Liverpool are closing in on their man, who could be the perfect strike partner for Fernando Torres.
Are Spurs missing out? Will Kenny get his man? Will it make a difference to Liverpool’s season? Will anyone miss Ryan Babel? You can still follow him on Twitter I suppose.
