Luis Saurez currently training with Uruguayan team for their upcoming WC qualifiers.
Juventus have reopened talks with Liverpool to sign talismanic forward Luis Suarez.
The ‘Old Lady’ of Turin, who showed quite a bit of interest in signing both Suarez and Robin van Persie last summer, are negotiating with the Uruguayan’s agent about a possible transfer in the region of €30m (£25.6m).
Their earlier efforts yielded nothing when the Uruguayan decided to lengthen his stay at Anfield by signing a contract which would keep him at Liverpool until 2018.
According to various reports, manager Antonio Conte is a big admirer of the former Ajax hit-man and believes Suarez is the ideal strike partner for Juventus-bound Fernando Llorente, and considering the fact that the Spaniard is arriving on a free transfer, he has a good amount of money left to spend.
Beppe Marotta, the director general of Juventus, confirmed last weekend that Juventus has no interest in re-signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic because of concerns over his age, and also the wage demands, which are hard to fulfil for a club such as Juventus. Hence Luis Suarez, 26, would represent a significantly more reasonable option both in terms of age and wages.
Luis Suarez is the second most important player after Steven Gerard
However, from Liverpool’s point of view, any sort of approach for the Uruguayan striker could seriously derail the long-term plans of Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, who this season has been largely dependent on Suarez’s talents, and who has become indispensable for the team, along with Steven Gerrard.
