The Reds have acted swiftly after the manager of the Eredivisie outfit, Frank de Boer, suggested that he wanted any potential deal for the 24-year-old to be concluded by Saturday at the latest.

Suarez, meanwhile is determined to make the most of his switch to Anfield, irregardless of whether the former Athletico Madrid striker stays or not.  Speaking of his move, the Uruguayan was glowing at the opportunity that lies ahead. “This is a beautiful chance for me to join one of the biggest club`s in Europe. The history of the club and the fans are second to none, I am determined to do my best for both”.
