Long time Tottenham and Liverpool target Suso was reportedly wanted by Atletico Madrid this summer, but with the La Liga side reportedly close to sealing a deal for Thomas Lemar, the Premier League duo's path to signing the Spaniard might just have been made that little bit easier.
Suso joined AC Milan from Liverpool in January 2015, and he has gone on to notch up 15 goals and 26 assists in 95 appearances in all competitions.
According to BBC Sport, Atleti have agreed a deal in principle to sign Lemar, and if they complete the transfer for the Frenchman, they will surely end their interest in Suso.
Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato claimed earlier this year that Tottenham and Liverpool were keen on bringing the AC Milan winger to the Premier League this summer.
The same publication claims that the 24-year-old has a €40 million (£35.3 million) release clause inserted into his current contract with Milan, and both Spurs and the Reds would easily be able to meet that valuation.
Suso has proven over the past two seasons that he is a completely different player to the one who left Anfield in 2015, and he would surely be a welcome addition to either Tottenham or Liverpool.
