No, not a ‘late news flash’ but many media sources in Europe including the ‘London Daily Mail’ agree that Liverpool are eyeing Anderlecht’s 23 years old Argentinian star, Matias Suarez ; so too Juventus, Arsenal, Man City and Man United .
Arsenal are believed to have already expressed an interest .
Suarez’ agent Jorge Cyterzpiler , confirming the rumours, told Italian website Calciomercato, “The player has attracted interest from clubs in England and Italy. Liverpool have been spoken about but both Manchester clubs are also watching him. Juventus also have a chance to sign him. In April I will be in Italy to discuss his future. In the summer he will certainly move on but Anderlecht won’t let him go for cheap.”
With 42 goals in his four years at Anderlecht, not to mention his “assists” with 34 more, it is sure that Suarez sale will lead to a frenzied sale and for more than the £10million already mooted. For sure Arsenal are in need of additional goal scoring support for Robin Van Persie whilst Liverpool’s target men have not exactly set Anfield on fire either.
Manchester City and Juventus though are the current favourites to land the Argentinian. City’s available funds would see off any possible competition if they were to proceed with their bid but Juventus are almost certainly destined for the Champions League next season . As the ‘Mail’ says :‘With all top the clubs expected to make significant investments in the summer, the transfer window promises to be an exciting one and it will be interesting to see where Suarez ends up plying his trade”.
