Barcelona could be ready to offer one of a number of players to Liverpool in exchange for Luis Suarez, understands.
The Uruguayan striker has been one of the stars of this Premier League campaign, scoring 23 goals so far in the league as well as providing 9 assists, and has continued to be linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
Barcelona now seem to be the latest European giant to show an interest in landing the 27-year-old, and they could be prepared to lose big names such as Pedro Rodriguez and Alexis Sanchez in the process. Liverpool are believed to be looking at bringing in new wingers, and could be tempted by either of the two wide-men, who have been in fine form for the La Liga champions so far this term.
However, there will likely have to be a big cash offer alongside the swap deal to tempt the Reds to lose a player widely regarded as among the best in the world.
There’s always a lot of speculation so it’s hard to know for sure, but the latest I’m hearing is that Barcelona are ready to compete with Real Madrid for Suarez, a Liverpool source revealed. “They’re ready to offer us options for players coming in return, but I’m not convinced the club willl accept it. “Manager Brendan Rodgers will be under no illusions that a top four spot will be crucial in persuading Suarez to remain at Anfield for at least another year.
