Arsenal eyeing Liverpool flop Suso

According to Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb, Arsenal are currently scouting AC Milan attacker Suso.

What’s the story?

The Gunners have apparently sent officials to watch the Milan man, meaning that a summer swoop from the north London club could be on the cards.

The 25-year-old winger has been in fine form this season, regularly impressing with his work rate and creativity at the San Siro. According to Transfermarkt’s stats, the wide man has racked up five goals and eight assists in 22 Serie A outings so far this season. The same site also afford the Spaniard an estimated evaluation of £45 million.

Such a figure could easily put Suso out of Arsenal’s reach, especially if reports that Unai Emery will only have £40 million to spend in the upcoming transfer window are to be believed. 

Better options out there

Even if Arsenal were able to stump up the cash and acquire Suso’s services for a fair price, signing the attacking midfielder would still represent a significant gamble. While he has played Premier League football before, spending three years on the books at Liverpool between 2012 and 2015, he was a huge flop at Anfield and never managed to impress in English football.

Suso has certainly improved as a player since then, and the north London outfit are right to be targeting a new winger, but it could simply be that the 4-cap Spain international isn’t cut out for the Premier League. In any case, there are surely better options on the market for Arsenal to bring to the Emirates Stadium than the 25-year-old.
