As per a report from Calciomercato, Premier League giants Chelsea are expressing an interest in AC Milan attacker Suso.
AC Milan stint
24-year-old winger Suso has been on the books of Milan since 2015.
Following a loan-spell with Genoa during the second-half of his debut campaign with the Rossoneri, the Spaniard returned to the San Siro in the summer of 2016.
And he has since gone on to establish himself as one of the star men of the sleeping Italian giants.
The last two seasons combined have seen Suso rack up 13 goals and 16 assists in 69 Serie A outings.
As such, the former Liverpool youngster’s fine form with the Diavolo has seen Suso inevitably linked with a potential departure.
The likes of Napoli, Tottenham and Real Madrid were all touted as potential destinations for the gifted attacker during the summer, but, as per the aforementioned report from Calciomercato, a new club are now expressing an interest in Suso’s services.
The side in question are Premier League giants Chelsea.
Calciomercato claim that the Blues could make use of their recent contacts with Milan over Tiemoue Bakayoko to tempt the Rossoneri into parting with Suso.
French midfielder Bakayoko made the move to the San Siro on loan this summer.
As such, if Bakayoko sufficiently impresses those in charge at Milan over the remainder of the season, the Italian outfit are expected to make his move permanent next summer.
And Calciomercato have suggested that, if the Rossoneri do in fact choose to activate their purchase option on the midfield destroyer, then Chelsea could attempt to include Bakayoko in a move of their own for Suso.
It remains to be seen how open Milan would be to such an idea, though.
The Diavolo made it abundantly clear during the summer that Suso’s sale was not even being taken into consideration.
Suso is not the only player to have seen his name brought up in links between Chelsea and AC Milan over the last couple of days, with reports in Italy yesterday having claimed that the latter are expressing an interest in Blues’ midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
