Aston Villa: Villans exploring Luis Suarez move

Aston Villa: Villans exploring Luis Suarez move -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa are already exploring the possibility of signing Luis Suarez on a free transfer, according to The Telegraph’s Jason Burt.

The Lowdown: Quick start

Villa chiefs haven’t wasted any time when it comes to new additions for Steven Gerrard ahead of his first full season in charge.

Philippe Coutinho is now a permanent Aston Villa player, while midfielder Boubacar Kamara will officially become one when his Marseille contract expires at the end of June after penning a five-year deal in the Midlands.

Villa have also reached an agreement with Sevilla for centre-back Diego Carlos, and it looks as if Gerrard, who is currently in Paris for Liverpool’s Champions League final, now wants to raid La Liga for a third time with a move for former teammate Suarez.

The Latest: Suarez move?

Chief writer Burt shared an update on The Telegraph regarding Villa and Suarez on Friday morning. He revealed that the club are ‘exploring’ the possibility of signing Suarez, who is available on a free transfer after being released by Atletico Madrid.

The 35-year-old wants to play in one of Europe’s major leagues next season, however, his preference is reportedly to remain in Spain.

Villa have made some unusual signings in the past, can you identify some? First up, who is this who Villa landed in 2016?

The Verdict: Get it done

Gerrard has just two senior strikers on the books in Ollie Watkins and Danny Ings, while youngster Cameron Archer is set to return to Bodymoor Heath for pre-season following an impressive loan spell out at Preston North End.

You could argue that another striker is needed, especially as Gerrard has found success using a 4-3-1-2 system with Coutinho in behind two strikers.

If he goes with that again, Villa will be just one centre-forward injury away from being down to the bare bones, so landing Suarez, who has scored 69 goals in 110 Premier League games, could be another shrewd move.
