The former Ajax forward announced his desire to quit the Merseyside club last week, insisting that the English media had treated him badly and that it was not an environment he wished to remain in with his family.

As revealed by Goal on May 29, Suarez had refused to commit his future to Liverpool amid links to Real Madrid, with the striker himself then admitting that he would find it difficult to turn down a potential switch to the Liga giants.

Tevez, meanwhile, has long been linked with a Manchester City exit despite being the club's top goalscorer, alongside Sergio Aguero, during the 2012-13 season with 17 to his name.

City are prepared to take a hit on the fee recuperated for Tevez, with the former Manchester United striker having cost them £25 million back in the summer of 2009 when he made the move to the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool would not be in a position to match Tevez's lucrative salary although would be willing to offer him a long-term deal to compensate but is the 29-year-old the best option to replace want-away star man Suarez?

HAVE YOUR SAY

What do you think? Would Tevez be a decent option should Suarez leave? Or should the club focus on other transfer targets, including Luis Muriel, who, as revealed by Goal, is the club's primary candidate to replace the Uruguayan striker?
