Liverpool will offer Luis Suarez to Real Madrid in an attempt to stop him joining Arsenal, according to the Daily Star.
The Uruguay international, who is set to win his seventy-second cap this evening in the second leg of the World Cup qualifying play-off against Jordan this evening, was the subject of two offers from the Gunners in the summer.
The North London club will reportedly reignite their interest in the twenty-six year old when the transfer window reopens, though reports in Spain have suggested that the Reds will give Real first refusal.
Since returning to the first team after his ten game suspension the striker has been in sublime form, scoring eight goals in six Premier League appearances.
He is keen to ply his trade in the Champions League, though is his form for the Merseyside club continues, he could well fulfil those ambitions without moving on.
Meanwhile, Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho helped fire France to next summer’s World Cup finals with a brace in yesterday’s play-off second leg against Ukraine.
Les Bleus were 2-0 down from Friday’s first leg in Kiev, but they overturned the result by winning 3-0 in Paris last night.
Sakho opened the scoring with his first international goal on 22 minutes, before Karim Benzema levelled the aggregate score twelve minutes later.
The former PSG man then put pressure on Oleg Gusev eighteen minutes from time, leading to the Ukraine defender turning into his own net to put the result beyond doubt.
