Barcelona gets injury boost because Luis Suarez ‘can play again this season’ after a positive operation, but Catalans keep chasing after striker sign after Ousmane Dembele
- Luis Suarez expected to be out of action until the end of the season
- However, reports show that the Uruguayans will return before the summer
- Barcelona can draw a new striker to replace the injured Ousmane Dembele
Luis Suarez has brought Barcelona good news, as the injured striker is expected to be back in action before the end of the season.
The Uruguayan attacker was expected to be out until the summer due to a knee injury, but reports have now suggested that he has responded well to the operation.
Suarez exacerbated an earlier injury on January 9 during the Spanish Super Cup defeat of Barcelona by Atletico Madrid, forcing the former Liverpool man to undergo surgery.

Have sources told purpose Suarez is expected to be back before the end of the season, because he is already running normally, which has given the club a boost.
The Barcelona attack is worn out because Suarez and fellow attacker Ousmane Dembele are out of action.
The club is trying to sign a new striker, even though the transfer window is closed.
Barcelona may sign an emergency substitute for Dembele by proving that his hamstring injury will keep him out of the season.
Dembele could be free for up to six months due to the severity of his tear fluid.

Quique Setien has a shortage of attack options and can try to sign an emergency situation
The club is said to have a shortlist of four, with Willian Jose, Angel Rodriguez, Lucas Perez and Loren Moron all being considered.
LaLiga rules state that Barcelona can sign a forward game in Spain for domestic games if a medical assessment shows that Dembele will not return this season.
It means they still have no options in the Champions League. They are faced with Napoli in the last 16 after league games against Getafe and Eibar.
