Suarez plays down Juventus interest; Redknapp to look at MLS market

Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has played down reports linking him with a move to Serie A giants Juventus, insisting that he is ‘very happy’ at Anfield, Sky Sports understands.

The Uruguay international has rediscovered his 2009-10 goal-scoring form this season, registering 13 goals in 22 appearances in all competitions for the Reds, including 10 goals in 15 Premier League matches.

Suarez, who is valued at £28 million, has emerged as a potential January transfer target for the Old Lady due to the struggles of No. 9 Mirko Vucinic, Alessandro Matri and on-loan Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner.

However, striker duo Fabio Quagliarella and Sebastian Giovinco have done well for the Bianconeri, combining for 11 goals and four assists in 24 league appearances (17 starts) this season.

Nonetheless, Conte — who will return to the bench, after serving a 4-month ban, when Juve face Palermo on Sunday — wants Suarez at the Juventus Stadium.

“Serie A is very nice and a competitive league with great teams and great players,” Suarez told Mediaset after the Reds’ 1-0 victory against Udinese in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday.

“I know (Conte wants me at Juventus) because it’s been talked about quite a lot and I always read a lot of stories in the newspapers.

“But I’m very happy at Liverpool. It is a club where many people would like to play.”

Redknapp to look at MLS market

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp will look at the MLS market in a desperate attempt to rescue the Super Hoops from relegation to the English Championship, with Los Angeles Galaxy star striker Robbie Keane at the top of the Englishman’s transfer wishlist, Sky Sports reports.

QPR remain without a victory in the English Premier League following the club’s 2-2 draw away to Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

Don’t start counting, but QPR are currently on a three-match unbeaten under Redknapp, who has revealed that the MLS market could prove to be the saviour for the Super Hoops this season.

“The MLS market is one that we’ve got to look at,” revealed Redknapp.

“Robbie’s a good shout. He probably would be an interesting player.

“I haven’t spoken to him yet no but he would be an interesting player. He’s a good pro and he would be the ideal type to have around for sure because he would give us something.”

Redknapp could also consider bringing in Tottenham Hotspur winger David Bentley, whose loan deal with Russian Premier League side FC Rostov expires in January.

Now then, can Harry Redknapp rescue Queens Park Rangers from relegation?
