Having signed a lucrative long-term deal at Anfield last December, Luis Suarez may finally get his wish to leave Liverpool this summer, with the Daily Mail's Simon Jones reporting that he is set to complete an £80 million move to Barcelona this weekend.
Despite being embroiled in a biting incident—Suarez is currently appealing against a four-month football-wide ban—if reports are true, the Uruguayan will become one of the most expensive footballers of all time, rocketing into the Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale bracket.
The latest reports suggest that the Reds will receive a cash-only payment instead of a package deal involving Barcelona players, which means that Brendan Rodgers will likely have a sizeable transfer chest for him to secure a replacement for Suarez this summer.
It won’t be easy. Suarez proved last season that he has become one of the very best players in the world, and replacing his goals, creativity and work rate up front will be a decision that can make or break Rodgers’ thus-far encouraging career at Anfield.
Here are 10 forwards that he should be looking at as a potential replacement for his current No. 7. Let us know your picks and suggestions in the comments below.
