Chelsea have now ‘taken the first steps’ in trying to sign AC Milan winger Suso during the January transfer window, according to reports.
The 24-year-old previously spent three years with Liverpool, making 14 Premier League appearances, but failed to make any sort of impact on the Reds squad and he was eventually sold to the Italian giants for a small fee.
But since his move to Milan he has become one of the most exciting and creative wingers in Seria A and his performances for the Italian side have alerted Maurizio Sarri to a possible £34 million deal.
It is no secret that Sarri is still keen to improve in certain areas of the pitch this coming January transfer window, and the Spaniard would be seen as an alternative to the ageing Pedro and the Barcelona linked Willian, with reports emerging which have claimed his agent has already met with the Spaniards to discuss a possible move to the Nou Camp this January transfer window.
Suso has a contract running until June 2022, but the TMW website has claimed Sarri’s already put the wheels in motion to secure Suso’s signature by allowing Willian to discuss a possible switch to Barcelona this coming transfer window.
Willian was convinced to stay in the summer transfer window by the Italian boss, but has not made the kind of impression on the side that Sarri expected and now he is willing to let the Brazilian leave, if Barcelona can meet the £70 million price tag we have currently set.
Would bringing in Suso as a replacement for Willian be a good move?
Willian has been brilliant for us over the seasons, but he is now not the kind of player he once was and bringing in some fresh meat like Suso would bring a different dimension to the side, especially as he are missing a little bit of width on the right hand side.
And the fact that we could land Suso for just £34 million, well that would be an absolute bargain for the club, especially if we do sell Willian for the £70 million that is being talked about.
