Talented youngster Suso's AC Milan spell could be over after after just 12 months, with reports in Italy claiming he could be sold in January.
Suso's troubles have been exacerbated by a failure to win over new boss Sinisa Mihaijlovic, who did not sign him, and has given him only 54 minutes of first team action this season.
Since signing, he has played only seven games for an inconsistent Milan side, providing one assist.
So should Liverpool move to bring him back?
Suso was one of Liverpool's most promising talents, but left last year after becoming frustrated over a lack of chances under Brendan Rodgers.
If Rodgers was still there, this would not even be a talking point, but with new manager Jurgen Klopp last week appointed, it could be an option worth exploring.
Klopp has a track record of developing young players, and Suso is still only 21-years-old.
Club and player could simply put it down to a lost year, liken it to a learning experience out on loan, and try and work Suso in among their current options, with the five-time capped Spain under-21 international able to play out wide or as an attacking midfielder.
The player may prefer a move back to Spain, but if he is keen on an Anfield return, the least he could do is reach out to the club and see if the interest is mutual.
