SER: Barcelona eye Maxi Gomez to replace Luis Suarez

Barcelona have made contact with the entourage of Valencia forward Maxi Gomez, according to Cadena SER.

The Catalan club view Gomez, 24, as an ideal replacement for his fellow Uruguay international Luis Suarez.

Barca have been in touch with his camp to find out what the costs involved would be,.

Several Premier League teams are also attentive to Gomez’s situation, with Valencia’s fire sale meaning he could be available.

Gomez joined Valencia a year ago from Celta Vigo, costing the club €14.5m plus Santi Mina and Jorge Saenz (on loan).

The striker’s contract has a €140m release clause, but he would go for well below that amount.

Gomez scored 10 goals in La Liga last season, his first coming in a 5-2 defeat to Barcelona in September 2019.

He then found the net twice in a 2-0 home win for Valencia against Barca in January.
