Suarez, who is 22 years old, is attracting interest from Spanish clubs at the moment and Watford face a real battle to keep hold of him over the coming weeks.

He has spent last season on loan in the Spanish second tier at Real Zaragoza and scored 19 goals in all competitions to help them get into Play-Offs, so there is no wonder other clubs are wanting him now.

Suarez joined Watford three years ago but has never made an appearance for their first-team yet. Instead, he has been shipped out on loan from Vicarage Road three times to Real Vallodolid B, Gimnastic and Zaragoza.

Prior to moving to the Hertfordshire club, the Colombian had played in his native country for Leones, as well as having a loan spell at Granada B.

The Hornets face a battle to keep hold of many of their other senior players over the coming weeks, such as Troy Deeney and Gerard Deulofeu.

Suarez is a player who Watford fans will be keen to see in action having seen him hit the ground running for Real Zaragoza last term. However, Granada are lurking.

In other Hornets news, Vladimir Ivic’s side are after Barcelona midfielder Oriol Busquets, as covered by The72.
