Liverpool are plotting to sign Anderlecht forward Matias Suarez and pair him with namesake Luis in an all-South American strike force.

Matias Suarez Comolli is believed to have watched the striker a number of times this season, but is wary of Anderlecht’s hefty price tag.

Several English newspapers this morning report the speculation, also linking the 23-year-old to Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Anderlecht manager Herman van Holsbeeck has revealed of host of top sides are trailing the forward.

   “There are 15 top clubs prepared to pay the money we want for Suarez and the fee could be higher than the money we received from Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku last year,”

“Matias could have gone to Russia in the winter and also Juventus, but his wife Magali did not want to go,”

“Do I think Suarez is worth more than Lukaku? Well, technically he is a better player.”

Comolli was responsible for the recruitment of Luis ­Suarez, who has been a huge hit, but many signings made by Liverpool’s American owners have not brought the same value for money.

Suarez’s agent, Jorge Cyterzpiler, told press earlier this month “The player has attracted interest from clubs in England and Italy.

   “Liverpool have been spoken about but both Manchester clubs are also watching him. Juventus also have a chance to sign him.

“In April I will be in Italy to discuss his future. In the summer he will certainly move on but Anderlecht won’t let him go for cheap.”

While Liverpool’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, no doubt have the finances to bring in Suarez, they are wary about over-spending, having already forked out an estimated £115 million on recruiting new players during Kenny Dalglish’s short reign as Liverpool boss.
