Liverpool sign Luis Suarez from Ajax for 23m

Liverpool have agreed a fee to sign Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez from Dutch club Ajax for £23m.

The deal for the 24-year-old striker is subject to Suarez passing a medical and agreeing personal terms with the Premier League club.

Liverpool initially bid £12.7m for Suarez, but Ajax told them to come back with a more "respectful" offer - which resulted in Liverpool almost doubling their offer to tempt the Dutch giants to sell the forward.

The January transfer window is proving expensive - Bosnia striker Edin Dzeko reportedly cost Manchester City £27m earlier this month - and Ajax will make a £16.6m profit on a player they bought from Groningen for £6.4m in 2007.
