Mario Suarez, the Fiorentina midfielder and Spanish international, is trying to force his way out of the club and into a move to Liverpool, according to reports from The Metro.
After leaving Atletico Madrid in the summer, the 28-year-old midfielder was strongly linked with a move to Liverpool but went to Italy instead, where he has spent a lot of time as a substitute.
After not starting for the last six games, Suarez is reportedly unhappy with his lack of game time and, reports from talkSPORT suggest, is asking his representatives to get in contact with Liverpool regarding a move in January.
Suarez came through the ranks at Atletico but never quite nailed down a permanent first team squad, making a total of 125 appearances during his 11 years at the club.
He has been capped three times for Spain, however, and would no doubt have gone to Italy looking to revitalise his career.
Suarez operates mostly as a defensive midfielder, a position that will be of great importance to Liverpool if they implement Jurgen Klopp’s preferred style of high-pressing, fast-paced football.
