Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has shown his appreciation for both Neymar and Lautaro Martinez, two players that the reigning Spanish champions have been linked with in recent weeks and months.
“It is difficult to talk about players today. As is the situation in the world today, talking about who can come because of how everything is is complicated,” he remarked in an interview with Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo.
Suarez then went on to discuss Paris Saint Germain’s Neymar, who is someone Barcelona have been very strongly linked with and is someone Suarez knows very well having played alongside him at Barcelona previously.
“Obviously everyone knows Neymar and we know the appreciation that we have for him in the dressing room, which as a player is indisputable because he still has a lot to give and in the dressing room he would always be welcome because of the affection he has.”
He then went on to speak about Lautaro, who is widely reported to be one of the Blaugrana club’s number one transfer targets for the Summer transfer window.
“Lautaro is a player who has been growing a lot in Italy, he is a ‘nine’ who has movements that are spectacular and that reflects how great a striker he is.”
Uruguayan national team striker Suarez then went on to state that players willing to fight and help out will always be welcomed at the club and he appeared to show zero signs of bitterness that Barcelona were looking to bring in multiple players who could keep him out the team.
“When it comes to healthy competition in the team, there will always be that and everyone will be on the same side. Players who come to fight for a place and help the team will always be welcome. It will always make things better and it will strengthen the group.”
