Liverpool supporters have been making a lot of noise in the Transfer Tavern this week after seeing their side get back to winning ways in the Premier League with a 4-0 thumping of Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp’s men went into their clash with the Cherries off the back of successive draws against Everton and West Brom, yet they never looked troubled by Eddie Howe’s side as another attacking masterclass secured the three points on the South Coast. Goals from Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino sealed a comprehensive victory for the visitors, who took advantage of Tottenham’s 4-1 defeat to table-toppers Manchester City a day earlier to move back into the Premier League’s top four.
Subsequently, there have been many delighted Liverpudlians in the Tavern this week, several of whom are likely to be intrigued by a recent report from Ladbrokes, which has the Reds as 5/1 joint second-favourites and thus in the running to land Barcelona forward and ex-employee Luis Suarez.
The 30-year-old left Anfield for the Nou Camp back in 2014 after three great years at Liverpool, for whom he scored 82 goals in just 133 games and so nearly inspired to the Premier League title in 2014, only for Manchester City to pip them to the post.
However, the Uruguay international could well be on his way out of the Spanish giants in the near future and was even linked to be a part of a swap deal with Philippe Coutinho, and that seems to have shorten the odds of a return to Anfield as recent reports from Ladbrokes have him down as a 5/1 shot to sign for Liverpool, alongside Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
Nonetheless, French giants Paris Saint-Germain are the 5/2 favourites to land Suarez, although a remarkable return to Liverpool could well be on for the 30-year-old forward in the coming windows.
Landlord’s verdict: Luis Suarez so nearly inspired Liverpool to the Premier League title back in 2014, before making the move to Barcelona in the following summer after a controversial World Cup with Uruguay.
Yet 130 goals, two La Liga titles, and a Champions League crown later, the 30-year-old could well be on his way out of the Nou Camp, and reports from Ladbrokes suggest that a move back to Anfield could well be on for the Uruguay international, with it currently priced at 5/1.
Paris Saint-Germain are the favourites at 5/2, yet with Jurgen Klopp’s men joint second-favourites with Premier League leaders Manchester City, it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that Suarez does indeed return to Merseyside in the near future.
