Uruguayan forward and Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez could be the latest player to join the Liverpool reunion party at Aston Villa based on reports.
Aston Villa are reportedly pushing for the striker and have informed him that they are wiling to offer a wage of over 150,000 pounds, which will include several bonuses and a huge sign-on fee.
However, one critical element to this deal is the task of convincing Suarez to return to England, a task the Aston Villa manager, Steven Gerrard is currently working on.
Villa will face competition from Seville and Inter Milan this summer for the signature of Luis Suarez. Villa were linked with Gerrard’s former Liverpool team-mate in January only for the club to rule out buying Suarez.
But the veteran striker, 35, is now available on a free transfer this summer when his contract expires at Atletico Madrid on June 30. Villa last week confirmed the permanent £17million addition of Philippe Coutinho, 29, following his successful loan from Barcelona.
There is a possibility that that former Anfield and Barca team-mates Coutinho and Suarez could be reunited once again under Gerrard. However, Sevilla are reported to be keenly monitoring the situation with Suarez as they are in the market for a proven La Liga centre forward for the 2022/2023 football season.
