French media are reporting that Luis Suarez could be set for a move to big-spenders Paris Saint Germain in the summer, with the striker having undergone a particularly controversial spell at Liverpool this season.

The Reds staunchly defended Suarez throughout the entire racism row with Manchester United star Patrice Evra, but their support stopped after the Uruguay international refused to shake Evra's hand when the clubs played one another at the weekend.

Both Kenny Dalglish and Ian Ayre issued apologies on behalf of the club, and Suarez was also forced to say sorry for refusing to put the issue, which resulted in an eight match suspension for the 25 year old, to bed.

And as PSG look for a striker, the club have targeted Suarez, according to L'Equipe, after failed moves for Carlos Tevez and Alexandre Pato in January.

While at the start of the season Liverpool were favourites to make the top four, the Reds are finding the task of qualifying for next season's Champions League more difficult than first imagined.

The club currently sit at seventh in the Premier League table, and have won just two of their last nine games.

PSG, meanwhile, are top of the Ligue 1 table, and look likely to qualify for Champions League next season. The side have particularly high ambitions, and since the new Quatarian owners took over the club have been spending big to get closer to their goal of being French and European giants.

While Liverpool have insisted in the past that Suarez is staying at the club for the long term, and the controversial star has also pledged his commitment to the club, the recent events are reportedly making his future at Merseyside less certain.

Sir Alex Ferguson insisted after the Liverpool and Manchester United match up that if he were in charge of the Reds, he would tell Suarez to find another club.

"Suarez is a disgrace to Liverpool Football Club," he told reporters on Saturday night.

"That player should not be allowed to play for Liverpool again. The history that club has got ... and he does that today.

"It could have caused a riot. I was ­really disappointed in that guy. For a club with their history, I'd get rid of him, I really would.

"Liverpool have a player banned for eight matches and they've tried to blame Patrice Evra. It's him [Suarez] they should be bloody blaming. He could have cost them a European place."

Dalglish has been particularly quiet this week after apologising for his attitude to the hankshake affair, and the Liverpool manager is said to be angry that Suarez lied to him over shaking Evra's hand during the week.
