Leicester City may be looking for a striker to potentially replace Jamie Vardy this season or just planning ahead, however former Foxes defender Steve Howey admits that he can’t see Luis Suarez arriving at the King Power Stadium.
The Uruguayan enjoyed a stellar season with Atletico Madrid as they beat both Barcelona and Real Madrid to the La Liga title after being sold by the Catalan giants just last summer.
Should Leicester sign Suarez?
Suarez managed to find the net an impressive 21 times last season, only bettered by Gerard Moreno (23), Karim Benzema (23) and Lionel Messi (30), and after being linked with a move 12 months ago he may feel like a reunion with Brendan Rodgers could be a good way to go out.
Rodgers will obviously have a good relationship with Suarez as he managed the striker during his time at Liverpool, but Howey does not expect to see the 34-year-old linking back up with his former manager, as he exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“Rodgers knows him from his Liverpool days and Suarez got a few goals last season and obviously Atletico won La Liga, but I’d be surprised if he comes to Leicester to be honest.”
If the Foxes are looking for someone to replace Vardy, it would not be a 34-year-old striker that may only have a couple of seasons left in him at the top level and will surely demand a huge wage packet.
They appear to have found someone that could potentially take over from Vardy and that is Odsonne Edouard, who they are reportedly in talks with to bring in from Celtic and link up once again with Rodgers.
