Barcelona Ready To Move For Liverpool Star As A Replacement For Luis Suárez
Barcelona have successfully raided Liverpool before when they captured Luis Suárez in 2014.
The Reds' former talisman made over 100 appearances for the club before he made his switch to the Camp Nou, with him forging a strong relationship in Barça's attack force alongside Lionel Messi.
According to Goal (via SPORT), Barça are already looking at a future without the Uruguayan.
Suárez turns 32 in January and isn't getting any younger, so the Spanish club are apparently turning their attention to Liverpool once again.
Goal reports that the reigning La Liga champions are keeping a close watch on Roberto Firmino ahead of a potential move for him next summer.
The 27-year-old Brazilian has been Jürgen Klopp's first-choice striker and rounds off Liverpool's deadly attacking trio alongside Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané.
It's reported that the Reds striker would cost Barça in the same radius as Philippe Coutinho's £146m fee, though the Liverpool manager will be keen not to lose Firmino at any cost.
Barcelona have already shown an interest in one of Serie A's rising stars and another in Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly, along with making progress in the signing of a Manchester City target.
In fact, SPORTbible reported that the club have a 14-man list of transfer targets.
