ATLETICO MADRID are ready to steal in and grab Luis Suarez – as his Juventus switch stalls.

The former Liverpool striker had been set to move to the Italian champions.

But this switch is in jeopardy as Juve are set to sign ex-Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko for £15m from Roma.

Barca star Suarez had sat an Italian language exam ahead of his move after Juve made him their top target in July.

But with places up front very competitive at the club Cristiano Ronaldo plays for, Atletico could now try and keep the Uruguay hitman in Spain.

Juve needed a replacement for Gonzalo Higuain, who has been released to allow him to join David Beckham’s Inter Miami side.

Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano claims Atletico boss Diego Simeone is now ready to pounce for his fellow South American.

A tweet said: “Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone would love to have Luis Suarez.

“The club is considering a move for the Uruguayan.”

Suarez, 33, has been bombed out by Barca.

New boss Ronald Koeman does not see him as part of his plans.

Ajax are also after the striker, who used to play for them.

Juve were happy to meet Suarez’ wage demands.

But he may feel now he is better off in Spain as he might not get much game time in Turin.

And at his age, that is crucial.

However, even at Atletico he would face a job to dislodge Diego Costa and Alvaro Morata up front.
