Fiorentina Pair Linked With Move To England

fiorentina-fansAccording to Gazzetta dello Sport, Premier League side Liverpool are interested in signing Fiorentina pair Giuseppe Rossi and Mario Suarez.

Neither Rossi and Suarez have been able to hold down a regular spot in Paulo Sousa’s squad.

Rossi has been very vocal in his desire to leave Fiorentina during the January transfer window, while Suarez has played in only a handful of games since he signed from Atletico in the summer.

The Spanish midfielder spent most of his career at Atletico where he played for five seasons, amassing over 170 games, and will not be impressed with the complete lack of games since he joined the club. Suarez would certainly add some real grit and fight to the Reds midfield and he would represent a very smart signing, if it comes to something.

On paper, it would seem strange for the Reds to bring in two 28 year olds from the same club, particularly as both are struggling to get on the field. But Klopp has taken players from clubs in the past where they weren’t fancied, and both have proven previously that they have plenty to offer.

Suarez could offer the kind of authority and presence in midfield to go some way to replacing Steven Gerrard, who departed in the summer, while former Manchester United striker Rossi—if he can stay fit—could be an upgrade on Christian Benteke, who has managed only six goals in 17 league appearances since moving to Anfield from Aston Villa during the summer.
