Liverpool reach £23m agreement with Ajax for transfer of striker Luis Suarez

Protracted saga reaches conclusion as uncertainty surrounds Torres
Ajax have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Liverpool over the transfer of striker Luis Suarez for a fee of £23 million.

The Reds have acted swiftly after the manager of the Eredivisie outfit, Frank de Boer, suggested that he wanted any potential deal for the 24-year-old to be concluded on Saturday.

The Uruguayan striker heads to Anfield as uncertainty surrounds the future of Fernando Torres, with UK exclusively revealing that the former Atletico Madrid star wants to leave the club by the start of next season with Chelsea heavily linked.

Suarez himself declared on Friday that he was desperate for the Reds to reach an agreement with Ajax to allow him to grasp a "beautiful chance" to join a "big club in Europe".

The ex-Groningen man has won 38 caps for his country and was one of the stand-out performers at the 2010 World Cup as Uruguay finished in fourth place in South Africa.
