Luis Suarez's New Liverpool Deal: Pros and Cons

Nineteen goals in just 12 Premier League appearances. The first player ever to score 10 Premier League goals in a calendar month (and he's still got two December games left). Fourteen strikes in just six Anfield games this season. The impressive numbers are stacking up for Luis Suarez.

Last Friday there were even more figures to take in, too.

The forward put pen to paper on a lucrative four-and-a-half year deal with Liverpool which could end up earning him as much as £225,000 a week, a similar amount to the division's top earners Wayne Rooney and Yaya Toure (Daily Mirror).

Whilst there is little doubt that the forward is the hottest property in the English game right now, are Liverpool banking on him a little too much in their bid to return to the European football elite and perhaps even win the Premier League?

With the Reds currently top of the table ahead of Monday night's meeting between Arsenal and Chelsea they'll certainly consider it a risk worth taking, but what are the positive and negative aspects of the deal?

Here we take a look at four pros and four cons about the decision to make Suarez the highest-paid player in Liverpool history.
