Atletico Madrid Transfer: Firmino-Suarez swap interest, Atletico demand £103m for Llorente, Torreira stance

Roberto Firmino-Liverpool

Atletico interested in shock Firmino-Suarez swap deal

Atletico Madrid are shockingly interested in swapping Luis Suarez for Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino.

Diego Simeone is a big fan of Brazilian’s style of play and the reports suggest that Suarez could make a shocking return to Anfield.

Despite 33, Suarez continues to be productive for Los Rojiblancos, racking up 19 goals in La Liga and only four goals behind his former Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi.

Elsewhere, Firmino’s output has been reduced over the last two seasons and one of the highly regarded of the Red’s front three has only found the back of nets only six times in the Premier League this term.

Atletico demand £103m for Marcos Llorente amid Man Utd interest

Atletico Madrid have no intentions of selling Marcos Llorente and even if they do so, they want the Spaniard’s whopping 103m release clause to be met, with Manchester United already registering an interest.

Llorente’s transfer rumours have surfaced of late with the Red Devils ready to make a swoop this summer.

The 26-year-old has found his form back at Wanda Metropolitano after making his switch from city rivals Real Madrid. The multi-faceted player has so far garnered a total of nine goals and eight assists in the Spanish top-flight this season.

Torreira open to Arsenal return under one condition

Arsenal-bound Lucas Torreira is likely to return from Atletico Madrid after what turns out to be an unimpressive loan spell, making only three starts in La Liga.

The Uruguayan made his loan switch to La Liga in a bid to get regular game time but that wasn’t the case.

Now, Torreira is happy to wear the Arsenal shirt once again only if he is guaranteed more playing time, unlike the previous stints.
