A former Reds striker has claimed that the Anfield side have a strong squad, but need to bring back their former striker to strengthen even further

Liverpool legend John Aldridge has claimed that Jurgen Klopp should make a bold transfer move – by re-signing Luis Suarez.

The Uruguay international left Anfield for Barcelona in 2014, and has become a key player for Luis Enrique as part of the famed ‘MSN’ frontline.

‘Liverpool have more options than Chelsea’

However, Aldridge believes that Klopp should do everything in his power to get Suarez back to the club, having seen him score 82 times in 133 games for the Reds before moving to La Liga.

The former Republic of Ireland international feels that Klopp has a good squad, and that the only thing lacking is the 29-year-old striker.

“The squad is quite good to be honest because we’re not in Europe,” said Aldridge, speaking exclusively to 888sport.

“Coutinho is coming back soon and Matip and Gomez too. Plus the young lads have plenty of potential.

“The manager will know if he needs to buy one but if the right man isn’t available he’ll play the kids. Money is available but he won’t go out and buy for the sake of it.

“Personally, I’d go and get Suarez.”

Since joining Barcelona, the 2013-14 Premier League Player of the Season has lifted two La Liga titles as well as the Champions League and Super Cup, and may be reluctant to leave Camp Nou after forming a strong partnership with Lionel Messi and Neymar in attack.
