Barcelona will begin negotiations with Liverpool on Wednesday over a deal for Reds striker Luis Suarez.

Officials from both clubs will meet in London to discuss a deal for the 27-year-old Uruguay international.

Suarez, who has four years remaining on his Liverpool contract, is serving a four-month ban for biting Italy's Georgio Chiellini during the World Cup.

Liverpool are likely to accept an offer of £80m for Suarez, who joined for £22.7m from Ajax in 2011.

However, Barcelona are understood to want to pay closer to £60m.

Any deal may depend on whether Barcelona can include Chile and Barcelona winger Alexis Sanchez in part-exchange for Suarez.
