Luis Suarez, who joined Marseille last summer, has officially sealed his move to Almeria. The Colombian striker had been on loan with Almeria since the winter, and the club exercised its purchase option to secure his services permanently.
Suarez’s time in Marseille was challenging, with limited game time, but he found success in Spain, contributing significantly to his new team’s performance.
While Suarez’s departure is confirmed, OM’s President, Pablo Longoria, remains focused on recruiting two new attackers during the summer transfer window.
Luis Suarez Joins Almeria on a Permanent Basis
Almeria, via their official account, announced on Monday evening that they have exercised the definitive purchase option on Luis Suarez. The Colombian striker will remain with Almeria for the next six seasons, until June 2029.
Suarez’s loan spell in Spain proved fruitful, with impressive contributions in terms of goals and assists. He scored 4 goals and provided 4 assists in just 21 league games, gaining recognition among the Spanish club’s supporters.
OM’s Pursuit of Strikers Continues
OM President Pablo Longoria has made recruiting two strikers a top priority for the summer transfer window. While the outcome of the Alexis Sanchez case is still uncertain, Longoria is determined to strengthen the attacking department.

Despite the presence of Vitinha, who was signed for 32 million euros in the previous winter, concerns persist internally, and Marcelino, the manager, requires assurance regarding the available players.
At present, no concrete leads have emerged regarding OM’s pursuit of strikers. However, the situation is expected to evolve rapidly.
One option that excited many Marseille supporters was Folarin Balogun, but Longoria apparently abandoned the pursuit due to the excessive price demanded for the American striker. The search for suitable replacements continues, and it remains to be seen which players Longoria will target in the coming days.
