He made an instant impact on his debut, creating and scoring a goal against Manchester United last weekend. 

But Gerrard could be on the verge of completing an even bigger deal, with reports linking the club with the manager's former Liverpool teammate Suarez.

The Atletico Madrid striker's current contract expires at the end of the season, with the player looking for his next move. 

Palmeiras, Corinthians and Atletico Mineiro have all expressed an interest in signing the 34-year-old.

But, according to Spanish reporter Gerard Romero, he's ruled out the offers from South America to focus on securing a switch to Gerrard's Villa. 

The 41-year-old has reportedly already made contact with Suarez, who appears keen on returning to England's top flight once his deal comes to an end. 

The Midlands outfit boast forwards Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings, but the potential addition of Suarez would significantly bolster their fire power up front.

He's netted nine goals in all competitions this campaign so far, including seven in the La Liga. 

Suarez played alongside Gerrard at Liverpool for three-and-a-half years, scoring goals at an alarming rate. 

He bagged an incredible 31 goals in 33 league games in the 2013/14 campaign before sealing a transfer to Barcelona.

The Uruguayan continued his prolific ways in Spain, helping the Catalans giants to domestic and European success. 

He's in his second season at Atleti having won the La Liga title last term.
