PSG eyeing Liverpool’s Suarez

Paris, Feb 16 (IANS) Paris St. Germain have offered beleaguered Liverpool striker Luis Suarez to join the French club.

PSG tried to sign exiled Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez and Brazilian Alexandre Pato in the January window but failed in their attempt.

Meanwhile, Suarez has faced strong criticism from the English fans, players and managers for refusing to shake hands with Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra.

Suarez and Evra were involved in an altercation when the two met in an English Premier League match in October. The Frenchman accused the Uruguayan for racially abusing him following which the Football Association (FA) banned him for eight games.

Although Suarez has a contract on Merseyside to 2016, the Dailymail reported that PSG are confident he would consider escaping his current controversy and joining one of his closest friends, Diego Lugano, at the club.

Suarez was signed by Liverpool for 22.8 million pounds in January last year. He has scored 13 goals in 36 appearances for the club.
