Liverpool's initial bid for striker Luis Suarez was reportedly worth about half of what Ajax was looking for. Now, however, it appears as though Liverpool has closed the gap considerably, and a deal could soon follow.
According to Daily Mail, Liverpool has upped its initial bid of £10.95 million ($17.38 million) to £18 million ($28.58 million). Ajax was reportedly seeking £20 million ($31.75 million) for the Uruguayan star, but £18 million certainly might be enough to get the job done, despite Ajax's insistence that it's not enough.
While the rumors have been spreading for weeks, Damien Comolli finally confirmed them on Friday.
