Liverpool’s director of football Damien Comolli is reportedly interested in pursuing a deal to sign Barcelona winger Jeffren Suarez. The 23 year old winger is a bit part player at the Nou Camp and may well be looking at future options with his contract at the Catalan giants set to run out in less than 18 months.
The Merseyside club were linked with a move for Jeffren’s club colleagues Bojan and Ibrahim Afellay but a move for the Venezuelan born former Spanish Under 21 international may prove more realistic.
Pep Guardiola may be open to offers for the tricky winger as it seems he is by no means a crucial part of the club’s long term plans having been overtaken in the race for a first team place by Pedro as well as the aforementioned Bojan and Afellay.
Comolli has previously dealt with Barcelona on the move that saw Mexican international Giovani move to Tottenham, a deal that at the time was seen as something of a coup for the White Hart Lane club but has proven to be something of a damp squib after Harry Redknapp’s arrival at the North London club seemingly ended his chances of progress at the club.
Liverpool could do with more natural wide options having seen the likes of Milan Jovanovic, Maxi and Joe Cole fail to inspire and whilst Dirk Kuyt is a hard working presence at the club he showed again this weekend that he still has a lot to offer in his former role as a striker.
The Anfield side could well land Jeffren for a fee in the region of £6m, after all the player in question has made just 17 La Liga appearances since his debut for the club in November 2006 and this term has racked up just 71 minutes of first team football across all competitions.
