AC Milan midfielder Suso has been one of the main protagonists of the January transfer market on the back of his stellar run of form in Serie A and has attracted interest from Liverpool, who are considering bringing him back to Anfield as a possible replacement for Philippe Coutinho.
On Tuesday, reports in the UK on Football365.com suggested that Atlético Madrid may also be interested in bringing the Cádiz born striker, who spent a season on loan at Almería in 2014-15, back to LaLiga. Suso’s minimum release at the San Siro stands at 40 million euros after the player signed a new contract keeping him at Milan until 2022.
Gaitán and Carrasco heading for Atlético exit door
Atlético are in the market for a new midfielder with both Nicolás Gaitán and Yannick Carrasco failing to convince Diego Simeone. The Belgium international is a reported target for Chelsea while Gaitán has been linked with an improbable move to Swansea City.
Suso’s ability to play on the left is to Simeone’s liking and the Atlético coach has instructed the club to explore the possibility of adding him to the squad.
