According to AS, Barcelona are looking to sign Suarez’ namesake on an emergency basis, with the Uruguay international suffering from a long-term knee injury and with Ousmane Dembele also set to be sidelined for months due to an ankle problem.
The other Luis Suarez who is currently a Barcelona target, is a 22-year old Colombia international who is actually contracted to Watford, having signed with them back in 2017 following a spell at sister club Granada. He is currently on loan at second-tier Real Zaragoza, where he has scored an impressive 14 goals in 24 games so far this season.
The report further claims that Quique Setien and co have made contact with the player and could be eligible to make a reinforcement despite the January transfer window being closed – as they have an injury situation. If a deal goes through, the striker will become the third player named Luis Suarez to play for Barcelona.
