Out-of-favour Barcelona striker, Luis Suarez has been reportedly studying Italian intensively for the past few weeks.

He is getting ready to take the Italian language exam next week in order to obtain Italian citizenship, Gazzetta dello Sport claim.

This would take the 33-year-old one step closer to Juventus where he will team up Cristiano Ronaldo, the arch rival to his friend, Lionel Messi.

The striker started the citizenship process a few years back but abandoned it, now the Bianconeri are helping him get the documentation done faster.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are looking to terminate Suarez’s contract as he isn’t part of Ronald Koeman‘s plans for the next season.Last term, the 33-year-old recorded 21 goals and 12 assists in 33 matches.
