Liverpool eye ex-Man United ace as Suarez replacement

Liverpool will move to bring Juventus forward Carlos Tevez to Anfield if Luis Suarez leaves this summer, according to reports from The Express.

Even though the Uruguayan penned a new mega money contract with the Merseysiders over the winter and looks to be on course to fire them to a first Premier League title, there are still rumours circulating that he may once again try to leave the club.

Suarez publically attempted to engineer a switch to Real Madrid last summer after growing frustrated with media treatment and a lack of Champions League action at Liverpool.

If he does make a shock transfer away from the league leaders, Brendan Rodgers is ready to move for Tevez to replace his talismanic forward.

The controversial Argentine has already spent a large chunk of his career in England with West Ham, Manchester United and Manchester City, winning titles and domestic and European honours with the latter two.

Tevez only moved to Italy last year, but Juve may allow him to leave if a decent offer is received.

The two South American players are known to have similar all-action playing styles, which would make the Old Lady star a direct replacement for Suarez.
