Although the transfer window is already open, Liverpool are solely focusing on next Saturday’s all-English Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur. They are expecting a relatively quiet transfer window following some high-profile signings in the recent past. However, new stories are routinely making headlines on the various tabloids across Europe.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Reds are considering re-signing Suso after a blistering campaign with AC Milan. The Spaniard has notched eight goals and assisted ten times this season while operating from the right-hand flank of their attacking third.
He is one of the most influential figures of the current Rossoneri side but might still be allowed to leave should they fail to qualify for the Champions League this weekend in the final Serie A encounter.
The 25-year-old attacker has a release clause worth £33.5m in his contract – something Liverpool are weighing up having failed to keep hold of him four years back. He was roped in from Cadiz at the age of 17, but the player was unable to earn a regular role under Brendan Rodgers. A £1m move (as reported by the Mail) to Milan allowed him to flourish and eventually earn a senior call-up for his nation having represented them previously in the various youth ranks.
Suso is known for his creativity and technical traits, along with versatility high up the pitch. He is capable of operating down the wings as well as in a ‘number 10′ role with great vision, passing, dribbling, shooting and set-piece skills. His swift footwork, take-ons and the one-twos in the build-up play often expose the opponents’ leaving them in complete chaos and disarray.
Liverpool, meanwhile, are in the mix for a young and energetic attacker who could feature across the frontline. Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri have been competent as the understudy to Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, but the likely exit of Daniel Sturridge could lead to further exploration of the transfer market for an alternative.
Suso might not be an outright goalscorer, but the flexibility he offers would help the Reds to serve their purpose. Despite having admirers in North London, the player should prefer a move to Merseyside with a view of fulfilling unfinished business. He has always been the fans’ favourite, and the Anfield faithful would be euphoric to welcome him back if a deal is struck in the coming days. Suso fits the bill and would easily slot in Klopp’s system and succeed in his second stint while representing this prestigious football club.
