Jose Enrique urges Liverpool to bring Luis Suarez back to Anfield

Ex-Reds man Jose Enrique has urged Liverpool on Instagram to push for a summer swoop for his former teammate Luis Suarez.

Enrique, 35, has claimed that bringing Suarez back to Merseyside is a “no brainer”, adding that the former Barcelona striker is the best player he has ever played with.

Suarez, who enjoyed a three-and-a-half-year spell at Liverpool, has recently been touted with a stunning return to Anfield, per reports from Fichajes.net.

Part two of the Suarez/Liverpool affair?

Suarez, 34, was a huge success at Anfield, clocking up 133 appearances where he scored a whopping 82 goals while providing 47 assists.

In 2013/14, Suarez and Liverpool came within touching distance of the Premier League title, with Suarez scooping up the PFA Player of the Year award.

At Barcelona, Suarez’s career continued in an upward trajectory. In six years at the Camp Nou, the Uruguay international striker won four La Liga titles, four Copa del Rey honours as well as the Champions League.

Suarez moved to the Spanish capital last summer on a two-year deal, as reported by BBC Sport.

The former Ajax man has maintained his devastatingly high standards under Diego Simeone this term, scoring 19 goals and providing two assists in 25 La Liga appearances.

Atletico currently hold a four-point lead at the top of the Spanish top-flight, ahead of rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Is a move to Liverpool realistic?

Make no mistake, Suarez would be a welcomed addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad, though, this transfer is easier said than done.

For one, Liverpool aren’t often inclined to move for players in the latter stages of their career. Their reluctance to award 30-year-old Gini Wijnaldum a lucrative new deal proves as such.

Moreover, whether or not Suarez, who was hailed as ‘world-class‘ by his former manager Brendan Rodgers, would want to return to England remains to be seen.

He fought tooth-and-nail to return to Spain to be with his family in 2014, after all. It’s unlikely, then, that Suarez would want to come back to Merseyside so late in his career.

Still, the prospect of having Suarez’s talents utilised under Jurgen Klopp is a mouthwatering prospect, to say the least. Having a player of the Uruguayan’s quality would significantly bolster Liverpool’s attacking options.

Also, it would significantly ease the expectation on Roberto Firmino as the club’s leading central attacking figure. Both players are different, too, which would add a sense of unpredictability in Liverpool’s attacking play.

Indeed, this is all paper talk for now, but you can’t help but think could this really actually happen?
