Suarez Still Seeking Liverpool Exit In January

Luis Suarez remains adamant he will leave Liverpool sooner rather than later, and will look to make the move in January, according to Goal.

The Uruguayan striker tried to force his way out of Anfield over the summer, and was the subject of two bids from Arsenal.

Although Liverpool's owners were adamant throughout the summer that Suarez wouldn't be sold, although the player's camp believed that Arsenal's second bid which exceeded £40 million was enough to activate a clause that would allow him to leave.

Liverpool refuted that and refused to entertain the bid from Arsenal, while Suarez's threat to take his case to the Premier League failed to materialize.

Despite late interest from Real Madrid Suarez remained at Liverpool after the close of the transfer window amidst rumours he was willing to commit himself to the club.

However Goal claim that all trust has been lost between Suarez and Liverpool's owners Fenway Sports Group, and that he will seek the earliest possible exit.

That may prove to be tricky given the fee that would Liverpool would command, and whether Arsenal would go back in for the former Ajax man having spent over £40 million on Mesut Ozil remains to be seen.

Suarez is yet to play for Liverpool this term as he serves his suspension for biting Branislav Ivanovic last season, but will return to face Manchester United in the Capital One Cup later this month.

It might be tough to command a high fee for a troublemaker like Suarez, but if Sturridge continues to play the way he has been you could see Liverpool accept a lower bid just to eliminate the bad blood from the equation.
