Liverpool: If Suarez Leaves, Could Tevez Be His Replacement?

Fresh from scooping the PFA Player of the Year award last night, speculation is once again hotting up that Liverpool's Luis Suarez could be starting next campaign away from Anfield.

Just last month, Spanish paper Marca announced that the Uruguayan was almost certain to exit his current club this summer - and with Barcelona facing a transfer ban from next January, they could be tempted to splash the cash on the toothy forward.

But the Catalans will not land their attacking target without a fight. Over in the Spanish capital, their old enemy Real Madrid are also plotting a move for the star, and already it appears that this transfer struggle could go on...and on...and on.

If Suarez decides against a move abroad, there are clubs in the Premier League desperate for his signature, namely Man City and Arsenal, but whether Liverpool would allow their prized asset to move to a rival is another story.

But it's not all bad for Reds fans. The Express reports that, should Suarez sling his hook, Rodgers has already identified a potential replacement in Juventus' striker Carlos Tevez.

The Argentinian has already proved himself in England following spells with West Ham, Man United and Man City, and would surely bag goals in Liverpool's free-flowing and direct system.

Whether Reds fans would be satisfied swapping one wantaway South American for another, remains to be seen.
