Tottenham threaten Liverpool deal for want-away Ajax striker Suarez

Tottenham are threatening Liverpool hopes of landing Ajax striker Luis Suarez. The Guardian says Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is determined to improve his options up front in order to secure a finish in the Premier League's top four.

Tottenham face competition from Liverpool for Suárez. The Merseyside club have scouted the Uruguayan since August - the caretaker manager, Kenny Dalglish, made some of the visits himself - and they contacted Ajax at the weekend to check on availability and possible prices. Suárez, who played for Uruguay at last summer's World Cup, is known to be interested in playing alongside Fernando Torres.

Tottenham have asked Ajax the same questions and sent scouts to scrutinise the player. Ajax are in debt and they would be tempted to cash in on Suárez if they were to receive an offer in the region of €18m (£15m). The player is keen to move on.

"Luis is open to a new challenge at a really big club," said the Ajax coach, Frank de Boer.
