All eyes in the Football Transfer Tavern are on the Mail Online who suggest that Liverpool hope to offer a new contract for wantaway striker Luis Suarez at the end of the season.
The 26-year-old forward made clear that he had ambitions to leave Anfield during the summer as Arsenal saw two respective bids fail.
The Uruguayan international recently returned to first team action following his 10-match ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic and has already found the net three times in his three appearances.
Liverpool’s managing director Ian Ayre has now confirmed that the club is looking to offer Suarez an extension and said: ‘It’s too early to say that. We deal with every player in the same way. We review all our contracts with two years to go.”
Suarez penned an extension in August 2012, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2016 but the former Ajax man revealed that he wanted to move to a club featuring in the Champions League.
This brought about a bid worth £40million plus one pound for the forward which was immediately knocked back by Liverpool but Ayre has been quick to praise the striker’s attitude following his return to action with Brendan Rodgers’ side.
He said: “Anfield never fell out of love with Luis Suarez. He is at his best when he is playing football and scoring goals. His record speaks for itself.
“He is a very talented individual who shows fantastic commitment every time he pulls on a Liverpool shirt. I’m not surprised he is back firing on all cylinders.”
