Bavarians are hopeful of being able to persuade the Uruguay marksman to move to Munich this summer.
Liverpool are said to be bracing themselves for an approach from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for coveted front man Luis Suarez at the end of the season, reports the Sunday Telegraph.
The controversial, yet deadly, Uruguay international’s future at Anfield is under doubt after the 26-year-old was banned last week for ten matches for biting the upper arm of Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic in the Premier League at Anfield last Sunday.
And now the Bavarian giants are set to test the Reds’ resolve to keep hold of their forward by submitting an offer of £40 million for the player when the transfer window reopens on June 1.
Suarez only signed a new bumper long-term contract with the club last year that runs until May 30 2018 and so the Merseysiders have no pressure to let the player leave Anfield, especially after the player became the first attacker to hit 30 goals in a season for the Reds since Fernando Torres.
However, the lure of playing in the UEFA Champions League next campaign could prove equally hard for Suarez to resists come the summer.
