“For me, it will be a no-brainer and is a free transfer if I’m not wrong. Our front 3, Jota and Luis we will not be bad”
Enrique went on to add, “Obviously is no the same player that he use to play for LFC because is a lot older now but I really believe he could still do it really well for us. Best player I ever play with no doubt.”
Fichajes had claimed earlier this month that the Reds are showing interest in bringing the Uruguayan marksman back to Anfield. The lack of goals since the turn of the year has been a massive problem for Jurgen Klopp, so it makes sense for him to listen to Enrique’s advice by opting to sign Suarez at the end of this campaign.
Suarez’s Impressive Form At The Wanda Metropolitano This Season
The 34-year-old has rediscovered his goalscoring touch this season as he has produced a run of match-winning performances as the focal point of Diego Simeone’s attack. Suarez has registered 19 goals and two assists in 31 matches for the Madrid outfit this term on all fronts.
The ex-Ajax frontman deserves some credit for averaging 0.6 clearances, 2.9 shots, 0.9 key passes and 0.4 dribbles per game in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League so far. However, he has sometimes been guilty of giving away possession cheaply when linking up play with others around him, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 70.9% in both those competitions (stats via whoscored).
What Will The Uruguay International Add To Klopp’s Team?
Suarez has proven his worth as a prolific goal-scorer once again this season as he remains a lethal finisher in front of the opposition goal. He can still create chances out of nothing and has got the hunger to make himself useful in the attacking third.
The 116-time Uruguay international had a sensational goal-scoring record in the Premier League during his previous spell with Liverpool, so he would have no trouble adjusting to life in England if the Reds decide to re-sign him this summer.
However, father time is catching up with Suarez which makes him a risky option for Jurgen Klopp to consider this summer. The Uruguayan sensation will be a signing for the short-term which is something that the Liverpool owners, Fenway Sports Group, are not fond of as the player won’t have any resale value in the future.
Even then, the Merseyside giants should think about bringing Suarez back on a short-term deal as he will be a great back-up to Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota at Anfield. Plus, Suarez might finally get his hands on the Premier League title if he can manage to help Liverpool get back to their best when all of their injured first-team stars return next season.
