Liverpool are looking to re-sign Suso from AC Milan in £35m deal to replace Philippe Coutinho, according to reports.

The Daily Star, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Reds are considering a move to bring the Spanish midfielder back to Anfield despite offloading Suso less than 24 months ago.

The same article states that Liverpool are preparing to face renewed interest from La Liga giants Barcelona in 25-year-old attacker Coutinho in the January transfer window.

According to the same story, the Reds have identified Suso as a potential replacement for the South American should Liverpool finally give in to Barcelona although his £35m contract release clause could prove a stumbling block.

The Spain Under-21 international signed a contract with Milan following the expiration of his Liverpool deal in 2015 to call time on his five seasons at Anfield.

Suso has scored five goals and has made three assists in 10 appearances in Serie A this term to prove Milan’s most-creative player in the 2017-18 season so far.

Liverpool contended with a number of bids from Barcelona for their number 10 Coutinho in the summer transfer window but the Merseyside outfit refused to sell the Brazilian.

The Reds are in fifth place in the Premier League table and 12 points adrift of current leaders Manchester City.
