English interest in Inter striker Suazo

The father of Inter Milan striker David Suazo has revealed there has been interest in his son from several English clubs.

The 29-year-old Honduran, who bagged 95 league goals for Cagliari before joining Inter in 2007, is currently on a season-long loan at Portuguese giants Benfica, but could be on the move again in the summer should the Serie A leaders decide the striker is surplus to requirements.

Newcastle United are believed to have been linked with the front-man - who cost Inter £10 million - in the past as a potential replacement for Michael Owen when the England man was sidelined through injury.

And Suazo's father Don Nico, who is also the player's agent, has confirmed that several clubs are interested in his son's signature at the end of the season.

"David is happy at Benfica and could stay another year," he said, as reported by Tuttomercato. "Inter's intention at the moment is to wait until June before making a decision, and we have no issues with that.

"England? Some clubs are interested, but I repeat the key to this issue is Inter."
