Barcelona Want To Sign Luis Suarez To Replace Luis Suarez
Barcelona are in need of a quick-fix replacement for the injured Luis Suarez and interestingly the Blaugrana are looking at another Luis Suarez.
As per journalist Santi Ovalle from Spanish radio program El Larguero, with Suarez suffering a long-term knee injury and Ousmane Dembele also set to be sidelined for months, they are looking to sign the Uruguayan's namesake on an emergency basis.
The other Luis Suarez is a 22-year old Colombian who is actually contracted to Watford, having signed back in 2017 following a spell at sister club Granada.
He's currently on loan at second-tier Real Zaragoza, where he's scored an impressive 14 goals in 24 games so far this season.
