Liverpool News – Luis Suarez Edging Closer To Barcelona

Luis Suarez looks set to join the La Liga runners up with talks between Liverpool and Barcelona expected to be happening in ‘the next 24 hours’ according to the Mirror

Speculation has been mounting over the last number of weeks and with Suarez now serving a four-month ban, Liverpool look set to let the player go.

Another factor to this story is that Alexis Sanchez could be part of any potential deal that Liverpool make with Barcelona, which could see the Merseyside club snatching Sanchez from the reaches of other potential suitors such as Arsenal, who have also been linked with a move for the Chilean attacker. 

If Suarez is to go he would make a terrifying front-line for any opposition with Neymar Jr. and Lionel Messi alongside him. Just missing out on the title last season, Barcelona will surely score more goals with the inclusion of a player of Suarez’s talent. He scored 31 goals in 33 league games last season. His addition would give Barca some extra firepower that could get them over the line in the 2014/15 season.

For Liverpool it would be a huge blow as they strive to improve on last season as well as make some impression in the Champions League. Although Suarez has a four-month ban from the game there is no doubting that his inclusion in the Liverpool side would make a substantial difference, even if it was only for a part of Liverpool’s season.

One could argue it is crucial that Liverpool sign Sanchez as part of the deal. Sanchez and Daniel Sturridge would make a partnership that could rival that of the S-A-S one last term but sometimes a new striker coming in may upset the chemistry that Suarez and Sturridge had built up.

Without this swap being in place, Liverpool would be considerably worse off than Barcelona.  It is a win win situation for both clubs if the deal was to go through as a swap deal. Sanchez could find himself loosing a starting place with the inclusion of Suarez to the Barcelona set-up, and Liverpool will have a ready made replacement for their Uruguayan talisman.
