Juventus Want Ajax Star Luis Suarez - Report

Serie A giants Juventus are believed to be interested in signing Ajax attacker Luis Suarez.
Highly rated attacker Luis Suarez has attracted the interest of Serie A powerhouse Juventus with his outstanding performances for both Uruguay and Ajax in the past couple of months, if a report in Tuttosport is to be believed.

The Europa League hopefuls have been in the market for a new attacker for quite a while now and had initially set their sights on Wolfsburg star Edin Dzeko. However, the Bundesliga side are reluctant to let go of the Bosnia international, thus prompting Juventus to turn their attention elsewhere.

Technical director Giuseppe Marotta supposedly sees the 23-year-old Suarez as the perfect addition to the Vecchia Signora's front line and Juventus could decide to make a move for the Uruguay international in the January transfer window.

Suarez joined Ajax from Groningen in the summer of 2007 and has since developed into the club's absolute star player. The tricky forward has made well over 100 official appearances for the Godenzonen.

The forward's current contract with Ajax runs until the summer of 2013 and an offer in the region of €30 million could be needed to lure Suarez away from the Amsterdam ArenA.
