Baku – APA. Liverpool confirmed Friday they have agreed a deal with Dutch side Ajax to sign Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez, APA reports quoting AFP.
The English giants will pay a fee of up to 22.8 million pounds subject to the player passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.
Suarez’s much-anticipated move to Merseyside had been held up after the two clubs had failed to reach agreement on a transfer fee.
However Suarez had spoken enthusiastically about the prospect of a move to England, telling the Sunday Times in an interview last week that he believed he could emulate the success of Carlos Tevez in the Premier League.
"(England) is a league that attracts me, a country where the football is really good," said Suarez, who notoriously committed a goal-line handball which saved Uruguay from elimination in the World Cup against Ghana last year.
"Alongside the Spanish league it is the best in the world. In England you have a lot of clubs with aspirations to become champions and they are also very strong in the Champions League at the European level.
"I used to think that English football was not my style. But I saw Tevez play at Boca and Corinthians and I never imagined that he would play in the Premier League.
"When I see the way that Tevez plays there I think I can be a big name in England. It’s because of the energy, and the spirit they put into the game in England. Now, I think it’s a kind of football that suits me."
