Liverpool and Tottenham have been put on transfer alert as new Ajax coach Frank de Boer conceded that Luis Suarez is likely to move on.
The prolific Uruguayan striker has been linked with a move to both Premier League clubs in recent weeks, after Suarez suggested that it was time to leave Amsterdam and was open to a move to England.
De Boer has had talks with Suarez at the club’s winter training camp in Turkey, as the Dutch coach prepares his squad for the second half of the season, and claimed that he already has a replacement lined up should the striker move on:
“I’ve had a showdown with Luis,
“I wanted to know what his plans are and what the future will bring. Luis is training hard. He told me that if a big club comes in for him now he is ready to talk to them,
“I’ve a back-up scenario ready.” (Mirror)
