Manchester City are allegedly planning a £40m swoop for Luis Suarez in January.

Manchester City are reportedly planning to table an audacious bid for Liverpool's Luis Suarez when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Premier League Champions will offer £40m for the Uruguayan international in an attempt to prise him away from Anfield, according to The Mirror.

City boss Roberto Mancini is looking to boost his strikeforce following reports that his job will be on the line if he fails to secure the league title for a second successive season.

Aletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao, who has a £48m buyout clause in his contract, is also said to be at the top of the Italian's shopping list, but he faces stiff competition for his services from Chelsea.

Suarez - who joined Liverpool from Ajax for £24m in January 2011 - signed a four-year contract at Anfield in August, meaning City face an uphill struggle to secure his services.
