Like many of their young South American imports, Watford’s Luis Suárez is yet to get his chance at Vicarage Road.

The 21-year-old joined the Hornets in 2017 but is yet to make an appearance for the club, instead spending the last two years out on loan in Spain, first with Real Valladolid and then Gimnàstic de Tarragona.

He continued his time in Spain this season, agreeing to a season-long loan deal with Real Zaragoza earlier in the summer.

His short time in Zaragoza has so far been a big success, with him managing four goals and one assist in his first six games to help his side to third in Segunda Divisón table, and take himself to joint second in the top goalscorer charts.

And the Watford youngster admits he did not expect such an excellent start to his latest loan move.

“The truth is, no (I wasn’t expecting such a good start),” he told Marca.

“I am very happy with this start both personally and collectively. Hopefully, we continue like this until the end. I don’t want to have a ceiling.

“I want to score all possible goals with Zaragoza. It’s too soon (to talk about the Pichichi). Now I’m scoring, but you can get stuck.

“I don’t think about it; I just focus on each match and scoring. The most important thing is to help the team win.”

Suárez will be hoping this year is the one in which he flourishes, after a disappointing year at Gimnàstic.

While the Colombian was their top goalscorer across the campaign, a poor year from him and his teammates saw them relegated into Segunda B.

A strong start to this year hints at things to come, with Watford likely to be keeping a close eye on how he develops once again.

He’s keen to spend another season at Zaragoza should things go well, but says the power is all in Watford’s hands, despite the fact a ‘not very high’ release clause in his contract.

“I have this year and two more (at Watford),” he added.

“I don’t know what my release clause is exactly, because they usually vary depending on the contract, whether or not I renew. Right now, it is not very high.

“I would say a million or something, but I am not sure about it. That is an issue that should be handled from club to club, in case they reach an agreement.

“I do not know (about next year). It depends a lot on the season. If this continues as it is, I would like to continue in Zaragoza for another year. But they are things that do not depend only on me.”
