Tottenham Handed Transfer Boost To Complete First Summer Signing As AC Milan Is Forced To Sell

published :

Tottenham are reportedly showing interest in AC Milan winger Suso, who may be on his way out of San Siro in the summer. The 23-year-old has been one of the best players for Milan this season, but it has not always been a rosy period for the winger since he moved to the Italian club.

Suso has contributed six goals and seven assists in 27 league matches this season. It has helped AC Milan remain in contention for a top three finish even towards the end of the campaign. A return to European football will be a major boost for the club, which has struggled for form on the pitch in the last few years.

Milan have not finished higher than seventh in the last three campaigns. They finished third in the 2012-13 league campaign and since then it has been a downhill pattern for the club. Recent arrival in the form of new investment from China is expected to spice things going forward. However, the club has to sell some of their best players to make some cash according to reports from TuttoJuve with Suso being one of them. Spurs are reportedly interested in the player as a potential candidate to replace Erik Lamela, who has increasingly become a forgotten man at White Hart Lane.

Lamela is widely expected to move to the Italian Serie A in the summer after being pictured heavily in the Italian capital of Rome. Even though manager Mauricio Pochettino claims that Lamela has been in Rome in order to get treatment for his hip problem, it is largely seen as an indication that the Argentine wants to return to AS Roma, the club where he has had a long spell. Lamela was known for his time in Rome before he made the £30 million switch to White Hart Lane.

Suso is no stranger to English football after having spent five years at Liverpool before making the move to Milan in 2015. After just a year at the San Siro, he was loaned out to Genoa where he had a year to settle into Italian football. This loan spell appears to have done wonders for the player, who is contracted with Milan until the summer of 2019. The club have been keen on extending the player’s contract, but they are aware that the player would not sign a new deal unless he is absolutely certain about the arrival of new funds from China.
