London, Jan 29 (ANI): Liverpool has agreed to sign Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez from Dutch club Ajax for 23 million pounds.
The deal for the 24-year-old striker is subject to Suarez passing a medical and agreeing to personal terms with the Premier League club.
Liverpool initially bid 12.7 million pounds for Suarez, but Ajax asked them to come back with a more respectful offer, The BBC reports.
That led Liverpool to almost double their offer to get the Dutch club to sell Suarez.
During his spell with Ajax, Suarez scored 111 goals in 159 appearances. His scoring ratio for Uruguay is one goal in every three internationals, having scored 10 times in 30 games, including three goals in last year's World Cup.
"I can understand Luis wanting to go to Liverpool, it's a beautiful club, but then it has to be satisfying for both parties," said Ajax manager Frank de Boer.
Suarez is the first major signing for Liverpool's new owners, Fenway Sports Group, since it bought the club in October. (ANI)
