Liverpool midfielder Suso has been linked with a possible move to Milan in the upcoming January transfer window as his contract expires in the summer. However, his agent revealed that the Serie A side have not made any contact regarding a move.
Jaime Serra, Suso’s agent, spoke to MilanNews.it and said, “Suso is a Liverpool player and his starting idea is to continue with Liverpool. If there’s an interested team they have to get in touch with the Reds and find an agreement with them.
“We don’t reject any possibility and it would be a pleasure to play with Milan, but first an agreement has to be found with Liverpool because his main choice is to stay where he is.”
When asked about an agreement with Milan, Serra said that he has received no word from Milan regarding a deal, “I don’t know, certainly not with me. You’d have to ask the board of directors at Liverpool.
“Milan asked me what the player’s situation was and I explained his qualities. But Suso has a contract until 2015 and in January he can sign with whomever he likes – for Milan, Roma, Liverpool or any team he wants, from the 1st of January.”
Suso had an impressive loan spell at Almeria last season where he was a key creator for the team from the wide areas and helped them avoid relegation. He had seven assists to his name and managed to score three goals in 33 appearances for the club.
Despite his agent revealing that Suso wants to stay at the club, talks of a contract extension have not started which could mean that the club will try to sell him in January for a cut-price fee instead of losing him for free in the summer. He made his debut for the club in 2012 and put in some impressive displays which earned him a new contract. After a good season in Spain, he was expected to compete with for a 1st team spot this season, but a groin injury in early October led to a surgery which ruled him out two months.
He returned to training last week ahead of Liverpool’s clash against Ludogorets but will not feature until mid December. With the likes of Lazar Markovic, Adam Lallana and Philippe Coitinho struggling for consistency, Suso could get a chance come late December when the games come thick and fast. Prior to his injury, Suso had appeared once this season in the Capital One Cup against Middlesbrough and even managed to score.
