Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is reportedly ahead of schedule in his recovery from knee surgery and could be back in action by the end of April.

The 33-year-old underwent surgery in January that ruled him out for four months but is “already walking normally” and has “passed a medical review with positive results,” according to Goal.

The report also states that Suarez could be fit for the semi-finals of the Champions League in late April, if Barca were to make it that far, and also the club’s last four La Liga games.

The confirmation that Suarez was out for four months came as a bit of a shock at the time, and it had seemed that the striker would be out for the rest of the season.

He’s recently been back at the club and has posted some updates of his progress on social media:

Barcelona are expecting to strengthen their attack in the coming week by making an emergency signing, following confirmation that Ousmane Dembele is out for six months after hamstring surgery.

There have been a host of players linked with a move to the Camp Nou in recent weeks with Willian Jose, Angel Rodriguez, Lucas Perez and Loren Moron reportedly the forwards Barca are considering.
