Will Suarez return to Liverpool? Reports coming out of Spain claim he might


  • Luis Suarez will return to Liverpool this summer if Jurgen Klopp has his way, according to reports coming out from Spain
  • net claim that the Reds are looking to bring in a veteran striker to complement Salah, Mane, Jota and Firmino
  • The 34-year-old striker has scored 19 league goals in 24 La Liga appearances since joining Atletico Madrid from Barcelona last summer

Jurgen Klopp is keen on bringing Luis Suarez to Liverpool, seven years after the Uruguayan left the club to join FC Barcelona.

Fichajes.net report that the German manager is keen to bolster his side's attacking options ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

The reigning Premier League champions already have the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino in attack, with the likes of Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri helping those above the duo in the pecking order from the bench.

However, with Origi set to leave Liverpool and Shaqiri also on his way out from Anfield, Jurgen Klopp won't have many experienced players on the bench should either of his front four get injured or need some rest in the middle of the season.

This is perhaps what is giving credence to rumors stating Suarez will return to Liverpool ahead of the start of the 2021/22 campaign.

 

Liverpool career stats for Suarez

The 34-year-old Uruguay international joined Liverpool in a £ 22.8million deal from Dutch giants Ajax in the 2010/11 January transfer window.

He scored 82 goals and provided 29 assists during his three-year-long stay with the club before eventually joining FC Barcelona in the summer of 2014.

Suarez managed 1.62 goals per games for the Merseyside outfit and won the Premier League Player of the Year award for his phenomenal performances in the 2013/14 season that also saw the Uruguayan share the European Golden Boot award with Cristiano Ronaldo.
