But Suarez is desperate for Villa move in order to follow the footsteps of his former teammate Philippe Coutinho who joined Villa on loan from Spanish outfit Barcelona.

And the Brazilian made an instant impact on his debut having come from the bench to help secure a 2-2 draw, making an assist and then scoring against Manchester United on Sunday.

Gerrard's comments on Suarez

Back in 2015, Gerrard who convinced Suarez to remain at Anfield two years earlier said via Metro:

"I don't think anyone ever looks forward to playing against Luis Suarez, he is a fantastic talent and a very dangerous player.
"He is a fantastic teammate, probably the best player I have played with.
"He's a good guy, a family man away from the pitch, we keep in touch and have supported each other throughout our careers."

Watford agree deal to sign Samuel Kalu

Meanwhile, in their bid to bolster the squad during the January transfer window, reports have it that English Premier League club Watford have agreed to a deal to sign Nigeria’s Samuel Kalu from Bordeaux.

The fee in the region of £2.5-£3.5 million is expected to be sealed which will see the Nigerian winger at the club until 2026.

Kalu is expected to take his medical on Wednesday ahead of the completion of his deal as it is believed that Watford have been trailing him for some time now.

It is now the player’s time to move as he will become the club’s fourth signing of the January transfer window after Samir, Hassane Kamara and Edo Kayembe.

Luis Diaz on the radar of Liverpool

Sports Brief earlier reported that English giants Liverpool are now linked with Colombian international Luis Diaz whose release clause is valued at €80million (£67m), according to reports.

The FC Porto star is on the radar of the Premier League club as he has also attracted interests from several clubs across the European continent.

It was gathered that his Portuguese club will not negotiate the player’s release clause as various reports claim Jurgen Klopp is desperate in landing the star at Anfield.
