Six Premier League clubs reportedly want 'new Suarez', surely Liverpool should be interested?

Martin Satriano is a name that only a handful of Premier League fans will have heard of. Currently waiting to make his Inter Milan debut, the Uruguayan has starred for Inter’s reserves. Six English clubs are keen. But touted to be the next Luis Suarez, do Liverpool join that race?

Satriano, 20, joined Inter in January 2020 from Nacional – the same club that produced Liverpool icon and current Atletico Madrid star Suarez. But in his 18 months at Inter, he has failed to make his debut under Antonio Conte. It remains to be seen what Simone Inzaghi does with Satriano.

The Mail, though, claim Inter could sell him on the cheap to help balance the books. Arsenal, Tottenham, Everton and West Ham are all on red alert – while Chelsea and Manchester City have previously been linked. While all could have an argument for needing a new striker, so could Liverpool.

Why Liverpool need Satriano, aside from his tag as the next Suarez?

Spanish newspaper AS described Satriano as the “new Suarez” shortly after his move to Inter. It is easy to see why. Not only is he scoring goals on a regular basis – netting 14 in 25 Primavera games – but he is aggressive. He has that South American tenacity that is often revered.

Powerful, and boasting quite a big frame for someone of his age, he is still young and a really promising talent. On the cheap, then, Liverpool could do with him – especially with Divock Origi likely to leave the club. If the Belgian ace goes, they will not have a proper number nine on the books.

Roberto Firmino is now more of a playmaker than ever while Diogo Jota is better in a similar position to Mo Salah and Sadio Mane. Having a number nine on the books is crucial and Satriano could fill the void Origi is about to potentially leave. The ‘new Suarez’ should be a target for Liverpool.
