Sensationally transfer story emerges from Italy…
Serie A giants Juventus are desperate to sign Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, and are willing to offer a large cash sum plus either Claudio Marchisio or Leonardo Bonucci, reports Caught Offside.
The Reds striker publicly wanted to leave Anfield during the summer, citing the need to play Champions League football as a primary reason – but Liverpool dug their heels in and flatly refused to negotiate with either Arsenal or Real Madrid.

Juventus have earmarked the striker as a genuine target, and are willing to break the bank to land the world-class forward.
Liverpool are interested in Italian midfielder Marchisio, and Juventus could offer the 27-year-old creator to sweeten the deal. Marchisio would be a brilliant addition for Liverpool, but fans will be devastated if his arrival means the departure of Suarez.
The Uruguayan striker is already at the top of the Premier League goal scoring charts, despite the fact he was banned for the first five matches of the season. His on field relationship with Daniel Sturridge has fired Liverpool to second in the table, but it’s widely thought that his head could be turned should a European heavyweight come in for his services.
On top of Marchisio, Juventus could offer stalwart defender Bonucci to Liverpool, too. For various reasons, swap deals rarely come to fruition, and this deal truly would be one of the most exciting of recent times if the Italian giants managed to pull it off.
