Liverpool are willing to bring a strike sensation to Anfield amid claims his club are willing to sell him for €50m, while Manchester United have one serious hurdle to overcome before they can sign Jadon Sancho, according to Tuesday’s European papers.
LUIS SUAREZ KEEN ON RETURN TO LIVERPOOL
Luis Suarez has reportedly asked his agent to secure him a transfer back to Liverpool amid claims Barcelona are ready to allow him to leave.
The Uruguayan striker left Anfield in summer 2014 and has gone on to score 180 goals in 253 appearances for the LaLiga champions, continuing his prolific form from his days as a Liverpool favourite.
But after a summer of heavy investment and ahead of a fresh approach to lure Neymar back to the club, it’s reported that Barcelona are looking to cut their cloth and are looking to offload the likes of Suarez, Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele over the next two transfer windows. Barca have also been linked with a swoop for AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek as a potential replacement for the Uruguayan.
And according to Sports Mole, who cite reports in Spain, Suarez is keen on returning to Liverpool, with the Reds also keen on making the deal happen.
As per the reports, Barca are willing to offload Suarez for a fee of around €50m (£44.4m), which despite being quite pricey for the 32-year-old, would give Jurgen Klopp a guaranteed source of goals and give Liverpool a serious alternative to Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah in their attack.
