Chelsea, who still stands as the only English club yet to be beaten in any competition so far this season, are already making plans ahead of the upcoming January transfer window.
Reports coming from Italy via Sport Witness claims the Blues are considering move for AC Milan midfielder Suso.
Aside reporting Chelsea’s are interested in the player, it’s added that the Blues have already made preparations in making the 24-year-old’s €38 million release clause.
Suso was on Milan’s scoresheet in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Sampdoria and it is no surprise that the former Liverpool midfielder is being linked with some of Europe’s top flight clubs.
Suso is currently in top form of his life and has been directly involved in 10 of AC Milan’s 18 Serie A goals this season as he has three goals and seven assists to his name.
This season, only Manchester City’s David Silva and Barcelona Lionel Messi have created more opportunities across Europe’s top five leagues this season.
However, such a gifted player leaving Milan will command an hefty fee and his current deal with the Italian side runs until 2022.
It is also reported that La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid are also interested in securing Suso’s services.
While Sarri might be desperate to reinforce his attacking options, it could be difficult for Chelsea to bring Suso to West London.
Speaking to Calciomercato last week, parties close to the Spaniard revealed the forward is focused on AC Milan.
“At the moment, he is an AC Milan player. He is very happy there. And he loves AC Milan.”
Sat fifth in the Serie A table, AC boss Gennaro Gattuso has the aim of returning Rossoneri to the Champions League.
