In case you weren’t aware, Watford own a player called Luis Suarez, or, to be more precise, Luis Javier Suarez.
Arriving from Leones FC in Colombia back in 2017, the young striker was swiftly sent to Real Valladolid’s B squad to get acclimatised to European football, which followed by a similar deal to Gimnastic de Tarragona in La Liga2 this season.
During this time with the Spanish side, the 21-year-old scored six goals and picked up two assists in 36 league games, which, while not awful, was enough to catch the eye of Real Zaragoza, who are interested in signing him for next season.
The news comes from El Periodico de Aragon, who explain the Spanish side have ‘already contacted Watford’ to get a loan deal, as well as being in touch with the player’s entourage.
The latter of the two have ‘admitted’ Real Zaragoza are one of the clubs after Luis Suarez, who is expected to continue his career in Spain next season.
The Watford forward is said to be ‘very attracted’ to the prospect of playing for the La Liga2 side, who finished 15th in the league.
However, other sides, such as Cadiz, Sporting Gijon, Mallorca and Almeria are also keeping an eye on the former Leones starlet, meaning Zaragoza have their work cut out if they want to see off the competition.
Suarez, down his end, would like his future sorted out in the next two weeks.
