Suarez has been the subject of a move away from Anfield since the summer, where Arsenal made two bids, with one being £1 over his £40m asking price, but according to the Mirror, it would cost another Premier League club £130m to take the striker away from the club.

Real Madrid have been the foreign club linked with a move for Suarez, and it would cost them or other foreign clubs less, £100m, to sign Suarez.

After Madrid spent £85m on Gareth Bale in the summer, they would have to break the world record transfer fee once again if they are to add Suarez to their side.

Suarez, who is the Premier League's top scorer having scored 19 goals so far after a delayed start to the season, signed a new long-term contract with the club last Friday.
