Tottenham are ready to fight Napoli for the signature of Suso, with the 23-year-old unlikely to commit to a new deal with AC Milan.
That’s according to Marca, who report that Mauricio Pochettino is a long-term admirer of the winger and was impressed as he scored seven goals and provided 11 assists last season.
It’s easy to see parallels between Spurs and Milan. The Serie A giants are pinning their hopes of a resurgence on promising young players, the kind Pochettino likes to work with in north London.
The Spanish international has become a key part of Vincenzo Montella’s side and helped them to a Europa League spot last term.
Spurs don’t always play with out-and-out wingers, though the former Liverpool attacker is versatile and could be used in any of the midfield positions behind Harry Kane.
Reds fans will not have overwhelming memories of his time at Anfield, as he never made much of an impact on Merseyside.
Nonetheless, now that he is showing potential he could be a useful option to have on the bench, and Pochettino is hoping to bring in more depth in order to avoid another disappointing campaign in the Champions League.
