Uruguayan FIFA World Cup star Luis Suarez is enthusiastic about the possibility of a move to England.

Ajax striker Suarez told The Sunday Times that he had initially believed his style of play would not be suited to the physical rough-and-tumble of the Premier League. But the 23-year-old said he had been inspired by the success of Carlos Tevez.

"(England) is a league that attracts me, a country where the football is really good," Suarez said."Alongside the Spanish league it is the best in the world. In England you have a lot of clubs with aspirations to become champions and they are also very strong in the Champions League at the European level.

When I see the way that Tevez plays there I think I can be a big name in England.

"I used to think that English football was not my style. But I saw Tevez play at Boca and Corinthians and I never imagined that he would play in the Premier League.

"When I see the way that Tevez plays there I think I can be a big name in England. It's because of the energy, and the spirit they put into the game in England. Now, I think it's a kind of football that suits me."
