Atletico Madrid could compete with rivals Real Madrid for the signing of Liverpool star Luis Suarez, according to the Mail on Sunday.

While Real have seemingly turned their attention towards Napoli star and Suarez’s Uruguayan team-mate Edinson Cavani, Atletico are desperate to land a world class replacement for Radamel Falcao.

As the Spanish side have just sold their star striker to Monaco for £50million, they will have the money to spend to target big names such as Suarez, who is also wanted by the likes of Juventus and Bayern Munich.

The 26-year-old had his best season yet in a Liverpool shirt this year, scoring 30 goals and lighting up the Premier League with his exciting displays. However, controversy has also followed him around during his time in England and he is said to be keen on leaving for a move abroad.

The former Ajax man’s season was cut short after he received a ten-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during a match at Anfield, but until that point he had been a strong contender for the PFA Player of the Year award.

Atletico have also targeted the likes of Christian Benteke and Javier Hernandez, as they look to replace the 34 goals scored by Falcao this season.
