Liverpool transfers: Suso wants to earn new Anfield contract
Liverpool transfers: Suso underlines his desire to fight for a first-team place at Anfield and earn a new deal
Suso has underlined his desire to fight for a first-team place at Liverpool next season and earn a new contact.
The 20-year-old midfielder spent last term on loan to Almeria, where he scored three goals and made seven assists in 33 La Liga appearances.
And the Spaniard is now desperate to force his way into Brendan Rodgers’ first-team plans, despite the likely arrival of a number of new players at Anfield this summer.
I want to stay here and sign a new deal
“After the season in Spain, I think I have become a better player – I learned a lot,” Suso told Liverpool’s official website.
“Obviously Liverpool are going to sign a lot of players because we are in the Champions League this season, and we have to have a good squad because there are a lot of competitions.
“But if I fight for my place, I do my best every day in training and when I have the chance to come on or start a game, if I do well, I could have chances to play a lot of minutes in the first team.
“I came here for two or three days at Christmas when I had my week of holidays to have a meeting with the manager.
“He talked to me, said he was happy with what I was doing and said that this season he wants me to stay here. I want to stay here and sign a new deal.”
