The Spaniard, who has won two Premier League titles at Stamford Bridge, has a contract at Chelsea that expires at the end of the season.

And boss Maurizio Sarri is already planning for life without the 31-year-old.

Reported by the Mirror, the Italian is looking towards Suarez and hopes Barca would be willing to cash in if they receive an offer in the region of £15million.

Suarez, 24, came through the youth ranks at Manchester City but made the switch to the Catalan giants in 2013.
