Liverpool have reportedly enquired about re-signing Atletico Madrid striker Luis Suarez, should Mohamed Salah leave the club this summer.
Suarez left Anfield in the summer of 2014 after nearly leading the club to their first ever Premier League trophy, only to fall short and he departed to Barcelona in a move worth £75million.
Whilst at Camp Nou, Suarez scored 198 goals in just 283 appearances and has cemented himself on the club’s all-time record scoring charts in third place.
However, he was moved on to Madrid this summer against his wishes and has used the rejection to spur Atleti on to an unlikely title charge thanks to his 19 goals from 26 games, leaving them two points ahead of rivals Real.
Yet the Uruguay international has no clause to prevent him from moving on in the summer and there is no shortage of suitors.
According to Spanish publication Deportes Cuatro, both the Reds and Inter Milan have enquired about the availability of the 34-year-old for the summer.
The report suggests Suarez is happy to remain with Diego Simeone’s men, but this has not stopped representatives from Liverpool sounding out about a potential move if Mohamed Salah was to leave this summer.
Salah is joint-top scorer in the Premier League this season with 19 goals and has been a revelation ever since arriving on Merseyside from Roma in the summer of 2017.
But the Egypt international told Marca during the last international break he was open to a move to Spain – with Real Madrid and Barcelona long-term admirers of the 28-year-old.
“I hope to be able to play for many more years,” he said. “Why not?
“No one knows what’s going to happen in the future, so… maybe one day, yes.
“I hope to be doing the same thing that I’ve been doing in recent years. Winning trophies, scoring goals, helping my team win trophies…
“That’s the most important thing for me.”
The former Chelsea forward has scored 119 goals in 192 appearances since joining in a £37million deal and helped the club lift the Champions League and Premier League trophies.
