Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp is reportedly looking into a deal for AC Milan’s Suso when the transfer window reopens during the summer. The Spain international previously plyed his trade at Anfield between 2012 and 2015 before opting for a new challenge in the Serie A.
According to Calciomercato, Klopp is understood to be a keen follower of the player’s developments and the German tactician could fancy an agreement to re-sign Suso during this summer’s transfer window. It is added that the Rossoneri are in no desperation to offload their leading performer and any interested clubs will have to trigger the £35m release clause on his existing contract.
Suso could not make much of a mark during his time at Anfield and much of this was associated with the development of Raheem Sterling during the same period. Since then, the Reds have progressed with Sadio Mane on the right side of the attack and they now have the services of Mohamed Salah to rely upon for the same.
As such, a return to Liverpool could be more of a backward step for Suso ahead of next season and the Spaniard may want assurances of regular gametime from the German before stepping into the Reds shoes for a second stint.
Suso has been one of the Rossoneri’s regulars over the past 24 months and he has managed to maintain a regular spot in the starting spot despite the club’s record spending spree last summer.
During the current campaign, Suso has scored 6 goals and added 10 assists in the Serie A and his efforts see the Rossoneri within the cusp of Europa League qualification.
The San Siro outfit are currently just one point ahead of seventh-placed Atalanta after gameweek 37 and they need to pick up three points against Fiorentina or hope Atalanta slip up to guarantee themselves of a Europa League spot.
