Suarez’s international teammate was only bought by PSG for £55million last summer, but he is thought to be unsettled in Paris, with reports suggesting Liverpool could offer £52million for the striker.

Balotelli has been continually linked with a move away from AC Milan this summer, and Brendan Rodgers is understood to be an admirer of the fiery striker.

4. Romelu Lukaku

Jose Mourinho’s reservations about the striker have been well documented, with Rodgers reportedly targeting Lukaku, though the 21-year-old would be a controversial signing, given his success last year on loan at neighbours Everton.

5. Divock Origi

Lukaku’s 19-year-old Belgian teammate impressed when played at the World Cup, and he has also been strongly linked with a move to Anfield.
