Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed the interest of his Lyon in Suso.
Suso has been used as the trequartista in Marco Giampaolo’s 4-3-1-2 in this pre-season and has shown encouraging signs that he can adapt to the role.
Giampaolo said that the Spaniard is a player ‘in his own league’ and that Milan should keep their strong players. However, according to Milannews.it, the club remains willing to listen to offers – but want at least €35 million from his sale.
Roma appeared as the only club genuinely interested in signing Suso but they have failed to meet the demands of Milan. In Ligue 1, in any case, the forward has admirers and today Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas admitted to RMC Radio that “Suso is one of the players we are looking at.”
Aulas added that “we’ll see after Friday’s game” whether a transfer can take place, as Lyon are getting ready for their first game against Monaco. Suso’s agent, Alessandro Lucci – accompanied by Serginho – was at Casa Milan today once again to take stock of the situation. MN claims that should Suso remain, he’d like to extend his contract and get improved wages of €4.5m per season.
There is less than a month left for the end of the transfer market. Suso has shown so far that he can be a key player also for Giampaolo, but the mercato remains open and Milan are attentive.
