Reports suggest that Juventus will rival Bayern Munich in the race for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

Juventus have reportedly made Liverpool striker Luis Suarez their top summer transfer target.

The Uruguayan's future on Merseyside has been the subject of speculation as the Reds face the likely prospect of another year without Champions League football.

Bayern Munich are believed to have earmarked a £50m move for the 26-year-old, who signed a new contract in August which ties him to the club until 2018.

However, Italian newspaper Tuttosport report that they will face competition from the Bianconeri as their attempts to re-sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic look doomed to failure.

Suarez, who arrived at Anfield from Ajax for £24m in 2011, has scored 29 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions this season.
