LIVERPOOL striker Luis Suarez could be on his way to Italy, according to reports today.

Napoli’s former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is planning to move for the Reds’ Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez, 26, as a replacement for Edinson Cavani, 26, say the Daily Mirror.

Italian clubs appear to be targeting the Premier League if today’s transfer stories are to be believed.

Juventus are interested in signing Manchester City defender Aleksandar Kolarov, 27, as well as striker Carlos Tevez, 29, who has already held talks with the Italian side, reports the Daily Mail.

But the Daily Star say Tevez is moving closer to a £10m move to Juve’s Italian rivals AC Milan.
