Luis Suarez ‘agrees’ move which will reunite him with former Liverpool teammate

Luis Suarez ‘agrees’ move which will reunite him with former Liverpool teammate

Suarez is currently a free agent after leaving Nacional

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez has reportedly agreed on a transfer that will see him be reunited with his former Liverpool teammate.

The 35-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Nacional earlier in the year.

According to Argentinian journalist Cesar Luis Merlo, Suarez has agreed to a move to Brazilian side Gremio, with Mexican club Club Azul also thought to be an option.

If Suarez does move to Gremio, it will see him be reunited with former Liverpool teammate Lucas Leiva, who moved back to Brazil after leaving Serie A side Lazio in the summer.

During the pair’s time at Anfield, they got their hands on the Carling Cup under the guidance of club legend Sir Kenny Dalglish back in 2012.

However, Lucas has recently been informed by his club to take a break from playing and training after a potential heart-related issue was spotted during a routine scan.

A statement from Gremio read: “The Medical Department of Grêmio Foot-Ball Porto Alegrense communicates that, after alterations were diagnosed in one of the routine pre-season exams of the athlete Lucas Leiva, he was submitted to complementary evaluations and referred to a specialist.

“Once the evaluations were completed, conducted by doctors Leandro Zimerman and Ricardo Stein, it was determined that the athlete should stay away from high-performance physical activities for a period of two to three months, during which he will be accompanied, monitored and guided by the Club's medical team and the aforementioned specialists.

“After this period, Lucas will undergo further examinations and evaluations to determine the evolution of his clinical condition.”


For Suarez, it has been a disappointing month after his Uruguay side were dumped out of the 2022 World Cup at the group stage. They failed to get out of the group after drawing against South Korea and losing against Portugal. A win against Ghana was not enough as South Korea managed to beat Portugal to seal second place.

Where will Suarez be playing next? Only time will tell.
