Report: West Ham keen to sign AC Milan playmaker Suso, Everton also keen

West Ham United are reportedly keen on AC Milan's Suso.

According to Calcio Mercato, West Ham United are interested in signing AC Milan playmaker Suso - with Everton also believed to be keen despite his links to Liverpool.

The Hammers should have Europa League qualification barring a final day disaster, and combine that with the big move to the Olympic Stadium and the new Premier League TV deal, manager Slaven Bilic should have plenty of money at his disposal this summer.

A new striker will be on the radar, but add another attacking midfielder - either to play central or out wide - could be another area for Bilic to strengthen once Victor Moses returns to Chelsea after a disappointing loan spell at Upton Park.

Now, Calcio Mercato believe that West Ham could be interested in offering a Premier League return to AC Milan midfielder Suso, though Everton have also been credited with an interest.

Suso, 22, left Liverpool for AC Milan last summer, but after playing just 55 minutes of football for the San Siro giants, the Spaniard was sent out on loan to Genoa in January.

Since then, the playmaker has shown what he can do, notching six goals and one assist in just 18 appearances, four of which came as a substitute.

Now set to return to Milan this summer, the report claims that Milan would want just €10m (£7.8m) for Suso, and as Genoa can't afford a permanent deal, clubs are circling.

In his native Spain, Celta Vigo and Valencia are believed to be interested, whilst in the Premier League, West Ham, Leicester and Everton are keen - though it's not clear how Roberto Martinez's departure from Goodison Park will impact that interest.

Having impressed at Genoa, Suso is now in demand - and if West Ham are looking for a left-footed playmaker this summer, Suso may be one of their best options.
