Liverpool would be in dreamland if Suarez rejoined scintillating attack

Liverpool could make a surprise swoop for Barcelona star Luis Suarez this summer, according to Don Balon.

What’s the story?

Liverpool fans were heartbroken when Suarez left Anfield in the summer of 2014, but it was not a huge surprise.

Much like the January transfer of Philippe Coutinho, it became known early on that the Catalan giants were interested in swiping for the Reds’ star player.

Suarez’s two-and-a-half year stay on Merseyside did not pass by without its controversy as he was banned twice for biting and once for racial abuse.

With regards to his skill on the pitch, though, nothing came close as he scored 82 goals in 133 appearances.

Since moving to Barcelona, the Uruguayan has hit the back of the net 110 times in La Liga alone.

According to Don Balon, Barcelona are willing to sell Suarez in order to free up cash for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.

The report adds that Liverpool are likely to be frontrunners for the 31-year-old’s signature, while Inter Milan are also interested.

How realistic is this deal?

There is no doubt that Suarez still holds a place in his heart for Liverpool, but he did have a fairly tumultuous relationship with the British press.

It is unclear whether the striker would be open to returning to Anfield, but if he did he would boost Jurgen Klopp’s already prolific attack even more.

Mohamed Salah is currently the star man at Liverpool and he surpassed Suarez’s best season of 31 goals by hitting 44 in all competitions.

The Egyptian international can still add to his tally as he will compete in the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 26 in Kiev.

Given how goal hungry the pair are, Liverpool would have a menacing attack, but Barcelona are not foolish and they will want a pretty penny for the hitman.

Transfermarkt value Suarez at around £76.5m, but the Catalan giants will require more than that to prise Griezmann away from Atletico.
