Liverpool are now stepping up their pursuit of Chile’s Alexis Sánchez as they prepare to sell Luis Suárez to Barcelona in what is turning into an extremely busy summer for the club.

More than £110m (€140m) worth of transfer targets have been secured or are being lined up. There is a budget of over £60m which will be supplemented by whatever is brought in through sales.

The biggest move will be the expected departure of Suárez and there now appears an acceptance at Anfield that he will go despite signing a new long-term contract.

Liverpool therefore want to include Sánchez as part of the negotiations with Barcelona. It appears that Barcelona will not have to meet the buy-out clause in Suárez’s contract – estimated at between £65m and £80m depending on sources – if Sánchez is included.

Liverpool will face competition to sign the 25-year-old and, because of his World Cup commitments, are yet to establish whether he wants to join them as manager Brendan Rodgers continues to strengthen his squad ahead of the club’s Champions League campaign next season.

Liverpool will announce on Monday that they have signed Adam Lallana from Southampton for £23m and will also make a move for another Southampton player, Dejan Lovren, the central defender, who will cost more than £15m.

Southampton, who have sold Rickie Lambert to Liverpool for £4m and Luke Shaw to Manchester United for £27m, face a fight to keep the Croatian, 24, who wants Champions League football.

Liverpool are also close to finalising a £10m move for the 19-year-old Belgium striker Divock Origi, but will wait until his country’s participation in the World Cup is over, and want Benfica’s Serbian winger Lazar Markovic who is believed to have a £20m release clause. Liverpool have already signed midfielder Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen for £10m.
