Brendan Rodgers eyes ‘Luis Suarez reunion’ at Leicester as star faces Barca exit

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers is reportedly interested in bringing Barcelona star Luis Suarez back to the Premier League.

Rodgers managed Suarez while the pair were both at Liverpool and the Uruguayan could now be on his way out of the Nou Camp.

New Barca boss Ronald Koeman has told the striker that he is not part of his plans with plenty interested in Suarez.

And Marca claim Leicester are one of those clubs keen, along with Juventus, Ajax, and MLS teams.

Rodgers had admitted that Leicester’s attacking force was the area that needed strengthening this summer.

At the end of the Premier League season, where the Foxes were pipped to the top four by Manchester United and Chelsea, he said: “We’ve made big strides this season.

“I think it was 51 goals in the previous season. We knew if we wanted to arrive in the top six, we were looking at 65 plus.

“We end up with 67, which is a fantastic return in a short period. But if you’re going to challenge up above that, it’s trying to get even more creativity and even more quality into the squad.

“Defensively we’ve been strong in the main for the majority of the season.

“We’ve obviously been hurt in this last period, with three of the back four out of the team, and that speed and quality will affect any team at this level. But generally, I’m pleased with how we defend.

“We would like to add more creativity and more attacking thrust at the top end of the field.
