Watford’s Luis Suarez attracting transfer interest – Miguel Alfaro

The agent of Watford striker Luis Suarez has confirmed that there is certainly interest from clubs around Europe. The Colombia international was signed by the Hornets more than three years ago and he has spent his time on loan with three different clubs. In the past two seasons, Suarez scored a combined 18 goals from 70 league appearances but he has taken his game to the next level this term with 17 goals in 29 outings for Real Zaragoza in La Liga 2.

Speaking to Radiosei, Alfaro acknowledged that Alfaro is attracting interest from Lazio in the Serie A but insisted that it is too early to take up a possible transfer, he told: “With Tare we talk about different players. The DS also controls many names that have remained secret. Suarez is an explosive, ambitious player; he can get to the top. But for now, it is too early to talk about him.”

The Hornets have depended on Troy Deeney to regularly lead the line but they have had Andre Gray acting as the option off the bench. Though Deeney has not scored regularly, the Hornets have benefited from having attackers such as Gerard Deulofeu and Ismaila Sarr, who have turned up during the backend of the campaign.

Still, the club may want to look into the future and Suarez could come into fray for a regular first-team role next term. However, everything may depend on whether they are able to avoid relegation from the English top-flight. The Hornets are currently above the drop zone on goal difference with nine games to play but they will need to start from scratch, particularly with the untimely break because of the coronavirus shutdown. The Premier League has been fancied to return at some point of time. There has been the talk of the games being played on neutral grounds such that stadiums in congested areas are avoided.
