Arsenal are favourites to sign former Liverpool FC midfielder Suso from AC Milan, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Gunners are in pole position to get a deal for Suso over the line thanks to their imminent appointment of Monchi as sporting director.

The same article states that Arsenal want to add Suso to their ranks to bolster Unai Emery’s squad ahead of a potential return to the Champions League.

According to the same story, the north London side could face competition for Suso’s signature as Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with the Spanish playmaker.

Arsenal have made a mixed start to life under Emery after the former Paris Saint-Germain manager took over the reins from Arsene Wenger last summer.

The Gunners were 2-0 winners against Manchester United at The Emirates last weekend to kickstart their top-four challenge after some inconsistent results.

Emery remains on course to win the Europa League for the fourth time after Arsenal managed to overturn a 3-1 deficit from the first leg to beat Rennes 3-0 at The Emirates and progress to the quarter-finals.

Arsenal will return to Premier League action with a home clash against Newcastle United on 1 April after the international break.
