Most of the bar talk in the Football Transfer Tavern has surrounded Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
The Uruguayan smashed four goals past Norwich City in midweek to take his total to 13 goals for the season despite missing the first six weeks of the campaign.
And yesterday England were unfortunate enough to be drawn alongside Uruguay for the World Cup group stages, worrying us all what the stunning striker could do to the same to the fragile England defence.
Now David Maddock from The Mirror suggests that Liverpool are ready to offer Suarez an ‘amazing’ contract offer as they look to ward off attention from Arsenal and Real Madrid.
The former Ajax man made very clear in the summer that he wanted to leave the Reds to play Champions League football, as Arsenal saw two respective bids fail for the 26-year-old.
However despite strong rumours, Brendan Rodgers managed to keep the world class striker at Anfield, and now Maddock reports that the club’s American owners will reinforce that commitment with a huge contract offer.
They will offer the sort of money often seen by the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea as they attempt to keep hold of Suarez despite intensive interest from Real Madrid.
The striker signed an extension in August 2012, keeping at the club until the summer of 2016 but that is unlikely to put off attentions from his host of suitors.
Does this news mean Suarez will be a Reds player for some time to come? Let us know your thoughts below.
