Valencia consider Watford striker Luis Suárez as a ‘low cost’ option to improve their squad this summer.
Suárez has been in impressive form on loan at Real Zaragoza this season, scoring 17 goals in LaLiga 2.
His performances have not gone unnoticed, with a number of clubs, both inside and outside of Spain thought to be keen on signing him this summer.
Valencia are one of those who are keen, according to Super Deporte, who say they have identified that Columbian as a ‘low cost’ option on the market.
The Spanish club are aware they need to make ‘significant changes’ to their squad this summer but know that finances may be tight as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.
They, therefore, need to look for alternative solutions to solve their issues and that’s led them to look at places where they may not have before, namely LaLiga 2.
Thus they have picked up on Suárez and consider him, alongside Almería’s Darwin Núñez, as a player at that level who is ready to ‘make the leap’ into a higher division.
At this point, their interest is nothing concrete but, should they look to make their move, they will likely face fierce resistance from Watford.
From the outset it’s been made clear they intend to bring Suárez back to the club this summer and tie him down to a new and improved deal, something the player has confirmed as well.
Even if they are willing to sanction a sale, it appears they will want a princely sum, with one report even claiming they’ve put a £50m asking price on their man.
That would presumably be far out of Valencia’s reach, especially if they’re looking at low-cost options already this summer.
