Barcelona are reportedly interested in replacing the injured Luis Suarez with his namesake at Real Zaragoza.

According to El Larguero, Barcelona have been in touch with Luis Suarez over a potential move to the Camp Nou after an impressive season in the second division.

The 24-year-old has scored 14 goals in 24 outings which appears to have caught the eye of the Catalan giants who are light on options in attack after injuries to Suarez and Ousmane Dembele.

However, a deal may not be that easy to complete. Suarez is on loan at Real Zaragoza from Premier League side Watford and reportedly has no recall clause in his contract.

Suarez is just one of several forwards being linked with Barca. Willian Jose, Lucas Perez, Loren Moron and Angel Rodriguez are also believed to be targets.
