Liverpool are reportedly ready to step-up their interest and place a €40million bid to bring AC Milan star Suso back to Merseyside.
The Spaniard departed Anfield in January 2015 and has since become a star man with the Rossoneri, becoming their main creative force under Gennaro Gattuso.
However, according to a recent report from Calciomercato.com, Milan are beginning to sweat about the situation surrounding the star Spaniard and his contract situation.
Club director Leonardo would like to extend the player’s deal and “resolve the issue related to the release clause, set at around €40million”.
Now, Spanish outlet Liga Financial state that Liverpool are preparing a €40m bid to try and tempt Suso back to Merseyside.
Their report does however suggest that the 25-year-old is in no hurry to leave Italy before the end of the season due to his importance to the Rossoneri.
Suso had a rather fruitless four-and-a-half years during his first spell at Liverpool after arriving as a teenager back in 2010, making only 21 first-team appearances following his £1m Anfield move.
The Spain international has also been linked with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
