Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly keen on pursuing AC Milan star Suso, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Spurs boss has been interested in the ex-Liverpool starlet who is able to play behind the striker or on the right-wing for a few seasons now. The winger, who could be described as a typical Spanish winger, has a release clause of only 35 Million Euros – a minimum fee incredibly low for such a talented player of only 25 years old.
Suso made his Liverpool debut as a teenager back in 2012, though struggled to find consistency in game time, making 14 appearances in three seasons, due to his age.
He then moved to Almeria who at the time were playing in the Spanish first division. The then youngster went on to make 33 appearances scoring 3 goals in the 2013-14 season in the south of Spain.
The creative winger then moved to Italian giants AC Milan in 2015. Where he has since gone on to make 97 appearances scoring 18 goals.
Tottenham are rumoured to have rivals in this transfer, Unai Emery is believed to be interested in signing to Spanish winger. Another twist to the story is that AC Milan are also keen on renewing the Spaniard’s contract in an attempt to remove the release clause.
Suso is keen on a move back to England however, having said this earlier in the year:
“Premier League football is different, I would call it special. I would like to play for Liverpool again someday.”
Luckily enough for the Spurs loyal, Liverpool don’t seem to be remotely interested in Suso, and the only competition we hold is the quieter club from north-London.
Suso would be a great signing, the wide player could be seen as a backup to Eriksen behind the striker, but would be a key player for us out on the right-wing. His creativity and flair has lead to him scoring 7 goals and bagging 8 assists.
Whilst not as statistically impressive as Eriksen, he would certainly add another dimension to our game and add versatility into our attack. He is someone we should be keen on signing if we are to challenge for the Premier League.
