Luis Suarez Linked with Aston Villa to Reunite with Former Teammates

Luis Suarez is reportedly linked to Aston Villa, in what could be another shocking transfer this January transfer window. Reports suggest that, Steven Gerrard, the Aston Villa manager and Suarez’s former teammate, has personally “called” to convince him to join the Villains.

Villa Finally Find Their Messiah?

Gerrard seems to be a massive hit at Villa Park as he has attracted players from several leagues to come and play under him. One of their latest transfers, Philipe Coutinho, had a rocking debut against the mighty Manchester United, registering a goal and an assist as they made a comeback from 2-0.

Another prospect who recently joined the Lions is Lucas Digne, who snubbed Chelsea to join Gerrard’s squad for a neat £23 Million this transfer window. Aston Villa are now placed 13th on the table with roughly three months to go. The arrival of the Liverpool legend to Villa Park, can help them reach a Top 10 position.

Luis would also be united with his former teammate Philipe Coutinho, along with an array of new talent this season. Gerrard also convinced Suarez not to leave Liverpool in the summer of 2013. Arsenal were keen to make a £40 million bid for the striker to activate his release clause. Suarez wanted to make the move to the Emirates but it was Gerrard who successfully convinced him to stay.

It would be a sensational transfer window for Gerrard if he manages to bring Suarez.

Athletico See Nervous Woes

Atletico Madrid are hesitant over providing Suarez a new contract as they want to make sure he is fit and in form. He has featured in 27 games yet and has scored nine times. The striker has previously scored 21 goals with them last season. He has netted 69 goals in 110 games while his time at Liverpool.

“Suarez has so much experience, and who better than him to resolve a game like that when it looked to be slipping away from us. Suarez showed incredible spirit. He has not been scoring recently, but he kept on coming close.” quoted Simeone.

But Athletico can search for a new face, who could last them at least 5 years down the line, which they are unsure about Suarez. It is rumoured that Suarez has offers from Brazilian sides Corinthians, Atletico Mineiro and Palmeiras. But the El Pistolero has so far rejected their proposals and is keen to look for a transfer back to England.

The famous Liverpool trio

This transfer rumour has got the fans pumping. A team, outside the top 6 will have a fair challenge to compete for the top 4 and ultimately, the PL title. However, the eyes will be upon Steven Gerrard if the team does not able to perform well. This news has caused a frenzy on Twitter.

One fan said, “If there is any truth in Luis Suarez to Aston Villa then that would be an outrageous signing, instantly puts them in European contention.” Luis Suarez would look to at least play two years, if he were to come on a permanent transfer. He would partner up with Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins, who hasn’t really found his footing this season.
