Chelsea are rumoured to be considering a bid for Uruguayan hot shot Luis Suarez. Carlo Ancelotti is known to be a fan of the Ajax goal machine and having seen the 23 year old put in a marvellous performance against South Korea in the second round of the World Cup he appears to be ready to make a move for the talented striker.

The Stamford Bridge boss is looking for new youthful long term alternatives to current ageing front pair Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka and believes that lethal finisher could be a good addition to his Premier League winning side.

Ajax will have a struggle to keep hold of their top scorer and the likes of Manchester United, AC Milan and Juventus are all apparently keen on Suarez but with Roman Abramovich reportedly ready to spend big this summer the Blues could well lead the race for the top notch striker.

Valued at around £22m the Eredivisie man netted an amazing 49 goals in 48 games last term and that included 12 goals in European competition thus proving his ability to do well at the highest level and not just the relatively average Dutch league.

Last year Chelsea reportedly came close to securing Luis Suarez Ajax midfielder Luis Suarez is widely reported in the Dutch media to have reached an agreement to sign for Chelsea.

The 22 year old’s agent Daniel Fonseca has reportedly tied things up with the Stamford Bridge club and is simply waiting for the two clubs to agree on the deal. (IMScouting)
