But Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is out to bolster his attacking options too.

And former Kop striker Suarez has told pals at Anfield his international team-mate Gomez is the real deal.

He scored 17 goals in his rookie La Liga campaign last season and is on course to hit double figures again, despite Celta’s struggles.

Interest from two Premier League big guns will leave West Ham gutted as they targeted Gomez in January and wanted to revisit the deal this summer.

He has another three years on his contract but £35m should land him when the window opens.

Suarez almost won the Premier League at Anfield before his move to Barcelona. And he has seen countryman Gomez settle quickly in La Liga after his move from Defensor Sporting two years ago.

Chelsea want an option should Gonzalo Higuain return to Italy following his loan from Juventus.

Olivier Giroud is also out of contract, although the Londoners have an option to extend his deal.
