FSG have golden chance to land perfect Liverpool free transfer who could unleash Darwin Núñez

Liverpool are on course to lose almost 50 goals since last season. With Takumi Minamino set to leave the club for pastures new, his 11 goal contributions from last season will add to the combined total of 38 that Liverpool have already lost since the confirmed departures of Divock Origi and Sadio Mane.

Replacing such a large number of goals will be a huge burden on the young shoulders of Darwin Núñez and Fábio Carvalho, both of whom should fill the void left by Julian Ward’s revolution at Anfield. Only two could cave to such expectations, and while FSG will be reluctant to spend significant sums on another backup striker, it could be a smart move to lighten the load on the club’s newcomers.

Of course, Liverpool don’t necessarily have to shell out the money for a backup striker. Instead, they could turn to someone who has already proven himself in the Premier League and is well seasoned to score goals for Liverpool.

Luis Suárez is available on a free transfer this summer after his contract at Atlético Madrid expires later this month and the 35-year-old Uruguayan is reportedly considering his options.

Playing in an extremely defensive team, Suárez still managed 16 goal contributions last season, averaging 0.62 goal contributions per 90 minutes for Atlético. Despite his veteran status, Liverpool could easily oust the Uruguayan striker for another year or two, especially as a substitute striker.

This move could also benefit FSG in several ways. While Suárez may demand slightly higher wages than a traditional substitute, he would be a fan-favorite move that would earn the supporters’ trust. He would spark fan enthusiasm for the club, helping to fill the void left by another Liverpool legend in Mané.

At the same time, Suárez is a player who is a huge admirer of fellow countryman and new Liverpool signing Darwin Núñez, whom he has spoken of extensively in the past. So who better for Núñez to learn first-hand – when it comes to settling into Premier League football – than the last Uruguayan footballer who did it with ease?

At Liverpool, Suárez could teach Núñez his ways and become a father figure to the young striker while instilling club culture and philosophy in his veins.

Of course, given that he still possesses plenty of quality, he would also maintain the competitive advantage in Liverpool’s attack and give Jürgen Klopp a powerful tool to use off the bench. It would be irrelevant for FSG, but maybe it would make sense.
