Roberto Firmino Ideal Replacement For Suarez – Arsenal Legend



Roberto Firmino

Former Arsenal striker Paul Marriner is certain that Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino is the right candidate to replace Barcelona striker Luis Suarez at the Nou Camp.

Spanish La Liga Champions Barcelona have made the signing of a new striker their top priority for the transfer window scheduled to reopen in the summer.

Barcelona are eyeing a long-term replacement for the ageing Luis Suarez who recently turned 32 and Paul Marriner believes that the Blaugrana should turn to Liverpool in their quest to sign a new striker.

Marriner was speaking while he was doing his punditry work on ESPN.

Luis Suarez joined Barcelona in the summer of 2014 after the Nou Camp giants splashed the sum of £75m to secure his transfer from Premier League giants Liverpool.

His influence has started to wane at Barcelona and senior club officials have moved to sign a replacement potentially.

He has scored 15 league goals in 22 games this term which is low in comparison to last season when the Uruguayan got 25 goals.

Luis Suarez scored 29 league goals the season before last having scored 40 during a phenomenal 2015/16 campaign.

Roberto Firmino signed for Liverpool from German Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim in a £29m deal and he has a long-term contract until 2023 after signing in April.
