"Once I end my participation with Monterrey in the championship finals my idea is to travel at once to Europe and keep up conversations with the team that is interested in me," Suazo is quoted as saying by skysports.com.
"The negotiations are very much advanced and I have to continue them in a few days. Before I travel to Europe I want to be part of the team that could give Monterrey a new title."
Suazo would not reveal the identity of the
club he is destined for but insisted talks are ongoing amid reports in
Central and South America the club in question is Spurs.
He added: "I can't and I don't want to say the name of the team with which I am having conversations.
"The only thing that I can say for sure is that these two games against Cruz Azul will be my last two games wearing the shirt of Monterrey."
However, ExtraFootie understands that Wigan are also keen on the prolific marksmen, whose playing style has been likened to that of Manchester United star Wayne Rooney, although there has been no confirmation from the club.
