Atletico Madrid sports chief Jesus Garcia Pitarch is expected to make a check on Ajax striker Luis Suarez in the coming week.

Pitarch is in South America to watch the round of World Cup qualifiers and intends to see Suarez in action for Uruguay.

Atletico striker Diego Forlan is a big fan of Suarez and said: "I appreciate him. I think Luis has enough quality to shine in the Primera, and could win the Golden Boot.

"I've read Barca are interested and other teams. I would advise he wait until the season ends."
