Report: Steven Gerrard now wants to sign another former Liverpool hero for Aston Villa

Steven Gerrard wants to sign former Liverpool teammate Luis Suarez for Aston Villa this summer.

That’s according to The Telegraph, who claim that Gerrard is exploring the possibility of bringing the Uruguayan back to the Premier League.

Suarez is a free agent having seen out his contract with Atletico Madrid. The 35-year-old, who scored 82 goals for Liverpool, would reportedly like to stay in Europe for at least one more year.

However, it’s claimed that Suarez would prefer to remain in La Liga. He’s been in Spain since leaving The Reds in 2014.

Gerrard is interested in scuppering that. Although Villa would reportedly have to weigh up whether his wages make him viable and whether he can still compete with the physicality of English football.

Gerrard seems intent on bringing Liverpool’s squad of the early 2010’s back for one last ride. The news that Martin Skrtel retired from football two weeks ago must have been a real blow!


In all seriousness, it would be great to see Suarez back in the Premier League. He was a fantastic player for Liverpool and his unique skillset makes him fantastic to watch.

There have been question marks from a few Liverpool fans over his antics whilst playing against The Reds since leaving. But there’s no denying that when he wore the Liverpool shirt, he gave it everything he had.

Gerrard has previously called his old teammate the greatest player he ever played with. To see the two of them linking up with Philippe Coutinho again would be a nostalgia overload for Liverpool fans.

Coutinho almost did The Reds a huge favour on the last day of the Premier League season. With Suarez in the league, there’s every chance he could do something similar.

His previous behaviour when returning to Anfield with Barcelona would mean he’d be in for another lively reception if he came back. Hopefully he’s learned from past mistakes and wouldn’t get too carried away with a goal at The Kop end.
