Another day into the Luis Suarez courtship with Ajax Amsterdam has Liverpool continually frustrated. It has been a tough January transfer market for the Reds as they look to add a strike partner for Fernando Torres. The inflation of transfer prices in the last several years thanks to the likes of Real Madrid, and now truly thanks to Manchester City, is causing higher and higher player values and requiring more and more funds.
This mornings reversal in the Ryan Babel move that will now see him go to German side TSG Hoffenheim and bring in another £7 Million to the club, and also the reported interest of VfL Wolfsburg in forward Milan Jovanovic of around £6 Million could see the Reds an additional £13 Million to add to their transfer fund with part of it looking towards sweetening the deal for the Uruguayan hitman.
The longer the talks go on the more and more likely it appears that a move for Suarez may have to wait until the summer if at all. Ajax are reportedly upset with the lower offerings from Liverpool, however, the striker still has the ability to table his own transfer request which would possible help push the deal forward in the next several days.
