Suarez keen on England switch

Liverpool target Luis Suarez claims he is ready to test himself in the Premier League.

• Ajax want swift Suarez deal
• Liverpool's Adam bid rejected

Ajax striker Suarez said that he once thought that he would not be suited to English football, but the 23-year-old Uruguay international has been inspired by the success of Carlos Tevez.

"(England) is a league that attracts me, a country where the football is really good," Suarez told the Sunday Times. "Alongside the Spanish league it is the best in the world. In England you have a lot of clubs with aspirations to become champions and they are also very strong in the Champions League at the European level.

"I used to think that English football was not my style. But I saw Tevez play at Boca and Corinthians and I never imagined that he would play in the Premier League.

"When I see the way that Tevez plays there I think I can be a big name in England. It's because of the energy, and the spirit they put into the game in England. Now, I think it's a kind of football that suits me."

Ajax coach Frank de Boer has warned Liverpool to move quickly if they want to complete a deal to sign Suarez in the January transfer window as the Dutch club will be increasingly reluctant to sell the later it gets in the month.

"We won't let Luis go on January 31 at 23.55." De Boer told De Telegraaf.
