Chelsea readying £55m striker swoop

Luis Suarez (Liverpool)Jose Mourinho is ready to spend big to lure Liverpool striker Luis Suarez to Chelsea, according to reports from Le10Sport.

The Blues chief has been keen on the Uruguayan for some time, and was even linked with a shock swoop for his signature over the summer.

After watching Suarez elect to stay at Anfield, Mourinho is ready to test the Reds’ willingness to keep their talismanic forward with a mega money January move.

‘The Special One’ is desperate to add a top class goalscorer to his side, and has been impressed by the South American’s six strikes in six matches since his return from a 10-game ban – taking his tally for his current side to 44 in 79 league starts.

Liverpool are far from keen to let the 26-year-old leave, but Chelsea are hopeful that a £55m bid may be enough to alter their stance.

The Londoners have a history of signing players from the Merseyside club, with Fernando Torres having made the switch in 2011 – during the same transfer window that Suarez moved to England.

Mourinho is also thought to be considering moves for Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Jackson Martinez of Porto as he looks to address his attacking concerns.

Could Luis Suarez really be the latest player to swap Liverpool for Chelsea?
