Man United and Tottenham have been placed on red alert after it was revealed that Ajax are ready to cash in on Uruguayan hotshot Luis Suarez.

Godenzonen boss Martin Jol is on the verge off leaving for Fulham after he was told by the Ajax board that they planned to sell Suarez after a string of impressive performances during the World Cup substantially increased his profile.

The decision to offload the 23-year-old marksman has understandably got the ire of Jol after the striker netted an incredible 49 goals for the Amsterdam club last season alone.

"He has been told that he must sell Suarez and Marko Pantelic was only offered a one year deal when he wanted two or three years so he has left," said former Ajax youth team coach Arnold Muhren, who worked with Jol last season.

"Martin wants to win the Dutch league this season and the board want to sell Suarez. He scored 35 goals last season so he would be impossible to replace."

Jol's former club Tottenham are believed to be interested in bringing the ex-Groningen man to White Hart Lane as they look to increase their goalscoring options ahead of their Champions League debut.

Redknapp had been keen to bring Brazilian forward Luis Fabiano to north London but, now the the 29-year-old has opted to remain with Sevilla, Spurs are expected to lead the chase for Suarez.

However, they may have to contend with United - who were also reportedly interested in Fabiano - as Sir Alex Ferguson is believed to be a long-term admirer of the Ajax ace.

But any deal could be subject to the Red Devils parting company with Dimitar Berbatov, who has failed to live up to expectation since moving to Old Trafford in 2008.
