Watford loanee Luis Javier Suarez Charris has been catching the plaudits while playing for Real Zaragoza in La Liga 2.
Luis Suarez joined Watford in 2017 from Colombian side Leones and was instantly loaned to Real Valladolid’s reserves. Last season, he played for Gimnastic de Tarragona before being sanctioned this move to Real Zaragoza this season.
The move for Luis Suarez looks good for all parties involved as Zaragoza look to push towards promotion back into the big time.
Real Zaragoza have been stuck in the second-tier of Spanish football since 2013, meaning that they have been out of the La Liga for over half a decade – a long way away from the side that won the Cup Winners’ Cup just shy of 25 years ago.
Watford and the Pozzo family have a good record with developing young, South American talent, so Suarez looks a really exciting prospect for Watford.
In previous years, the Pozzo’s have sourced players such as Richarlison and Alexis Sanchez from South America for both Udinese and Watford respectively, so are no novices about developing a player away from their home country.
Additionally, the network of clubs the Pozzo’s own allow for a natural progression into the Premier League. If Suarez continues this great form at Zaragoza, then there are plenty of options for him if he still isn’t ready for the Premier League then a potential move to Udinese could be on the cards, where they can keep a close eye on him and see how he develops.
It’s good news for Watford to see one of their loanees firing as they will hope he has the potential one day to break into the first team.
The Colombian has scored three goals in four games for Zaragoza and if he can continue in that kind of goalscoring form, who knows where he could end up next season? It certainly is promising.
