Italian outlet CalcioMercato have claimed that West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers could both become interested in AC Milan playmaker Suso in the January transfer window.
Suso, 25, is struggling to reach his excellent best this season with just one goal and one assist in 11 games for Milan. It is a spark contrast to his normal form, which has seen Suso have a hand in 60 goals in 147 outings.
The report claims former Liverpool man Suso has parted company with agent Alessandro Lucci – and that has left AC Milan waiting for Suso to pick a new agent, before having talks with the player’s representative over his client’s future.
Suso has a contract until the summer of 2022, with CalcioMercato claiming in another report that Suso has a £32.5million release clause. West Ham and Wolves are said to be monitoring the situation, as are Fiorentina.
TBR’s view – Suso for £32.5m is a bargain for Wolves or West Ham
Both clubs could do with a player like Suso, despite the Hammers boasting a number of players that can play in his position. Indeed, the likes of Manuel Lanzini, Felipe Anderson, Pablo Fornals and Jack Wilshere are all able to do the number 10 role.
Wolves do not have that amount of options in their ranks, though Joao Moutinho’s creativity is certainly a key part of Nuno Santo’s side. A move to Wolves, though, would be a better move for the playmaker.
