Steve Nicol wants ‘quality’ Luis Suarez back at Liverpool from Barcelona

The international striker is set to leave the Nou Camp this summer.

Liverpool hero Steve Nicol has told ESPN FC that the club should be trying to sign Barcelona star Luis Suarez this summer.

The Uruguayan left Anfield in 2014 when he signed for the Catalan giants for £80 million.

He has been a bit hit at Barcelona, scoring 198 goals during 283 appearances for the La Liga giants.

His time at Anfield was colourful and prior to his departure he very nearly led the club to the Premier League title under Brendan Rodgers.

During his time in the Premier League, he scored 82 goals in 133 appearances and also claimed 47 assists.

Suarez is surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp and although he earns £410,000-a-week, Nicol believes Liverpool should be trying to sign him.

He told ESPN FC: “Absolutely, 100 per cent, that would be a great move. It completely and utterly makes sense – it’s being smart.

 

“You’re going to get a guy, after you speak to him, you’re going to get a guy who I think is going to be happy to go back and play at Anfield.

“He’s quality, he will score goals and he will give you something in the front three that I don’t think they possess.”

Having Suarez back doesn’t seem a likely situation for Liverpool this summer with the pursestrings being kept relatively tight.

Thiago is set to arrive at Anfield and it looks like he might be the final piece in Jurgen Klopp’s jigsaw for 2020/21.

With Roberto Firmino struggling for form though, Suarez would certainly represent a better player to put some pressure on the Brazilian than Divock Origi.

The man with 113 international caps boasts a phenomenal goalscoring record and any club in world football would surely relish him at their club.
