Gerrard's Ambiguous Answer to Rumours of Reunion with Luis Suarez

Gerrard's ambiguous answer to rumours of reunion with Luis Suarez - Aston Villa coach Steven Gerrard has finally opened up about rumours that he wants to sign Atletico Madrid striker and former team-mate Luis Suarez.

The rumors were first reported by one of the Spanish journalists, Gerard Romero.

According to Gerard Romero, Luis Suarez has turned down offers from three Brazilian teams and one Saudi Arabian club.

The three Brazilian teams in question are Palmeiras, Atletico Mineiro and Corinthians.

The Saudi arabian club who reportedly want the signature of Luis Suarez are still unknown.

Romero said Suarez turned down offers from the four teams above because he wanted a reunion with Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa.

According to the journalist, Gerrard has contacted Luis Suarez to explore the possibility of a reunion.

Not only that, Romero also mentioned Aston Villa had agreed gerrard's want to bring Suarez to Villa Park.

The rumors are now being taken seriously as Romero had previously invited Suarez as a guest on his personal podcast in October 2021.

When asked about the rumours, Gerrard gave an ambiguous answer.

Gerrard opened his reply by stating Aston Villa do not need a striker.

However, Gerrard's answer was closed with a period of time. Gerrard said Aston Villa will not sign a striker in the January 2022 transfer window.

"We are not targeting a central striker in the transfer window now. That's obvious," Gerrard told the Metro website.

"I know Luis Suarez very well. He is a quality footballer. That's been proven by Suarez throughout his career," Gerrard said.

"However, we will not sign a central striker, whether it's Luis Suarez or anyone else in the January 2022 transfer window," Gerrard added.

Gerrard's answer this time can be said not to answer the rumors of Aston Villa's interest in Suarez.

Gerrard has specifically said he is not interested in signing a central striker or Suarez in the January 2022 window.

That is, there is still the possibility of Luis Suarez docked to Aston Villa in the transfer market next season.

Luis Suarez's contract at Atletico Madrid, which expires in June 2022, has not been renewed.

That fact makes Aston Villa a chance to get the services of Luis Suarez without spending a transfer fee next season.

The personal proximity factor with Gerrard further reinforces rumours Suarez will join Aston Villa.

Gerrard and Suarez played together at Liverpool for 2.5 half seasons from January 2011 to July 2014.

The combination of the two helped Liverpool win one trophy, namely the League Cup in the 2011-2012 season.

Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez also came close to guiding Liverpool to the Premier League's top-flight title in the 2013-2014 season.

Gerrard has managed to bring his former playing partner to Aston Villa, namely Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian attacking midfielder joined Aston Villa on loan from Barcelona until the end of the 2021-222 season.

Gerrard and Coutinho were together at Liverpool for two-and-a-second seasons between January 2013 and May 2015.
