Tottenham Hotspur linked with a move for Spanish attacker: Ideal player for Pochettino

Tottenham Hotspur are likely to move in for AC Milan winger Suso who can make a return to the Premier League in the summer.

According to a report from talkSport, Milan forward Suso has been on the radar of three Premier League clubs with Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool showing interest. Atletico Madrid are also keeping tabs on the Spaniard whose release clause is a fairly cheap one valued at just £33m.

The 25-year-old had 18 goal contributions netting the ball on 8 occasions across all competitions in the recently concluded season.

The Milan forward made the move to Anfield back in 2010 when he was just 17 years of age. After an unsettling tenure at Liverpool, he left for Milan in 2015 when his contract with the Reds expired.

Suso under Mauricio Pochettino: An exciting move

Suso is a versatile player who mainly features on the right-wing but can play an attack-midfield role as per the situation. The forward who showed signs of genius at a very young age has grown a great deal since his Liverpool days.

The 25-year-old possesses a wide range of skill set from his ball control,  key passes to his shot taking ability all being top notch. He usually hugs the touchline and likes to cut in with his left foot using his dribbling skills. The Spaniard can put in delicious crosses from the sideline which could play a significant role with the heading prowess Dele Alli and Harry Kane possess in the box.

Suso can play long balls which helps in the transition from one wing to another while his direct free-kick expertise, speed on the counter-attack and finishing in front of the goal are some of the attributes which can pose a threat to most defences in England.

Like any player out there, Suso does have his shortcomings. His defensive contribution and aerial prowess are not something to boast about but could improve under a good manager and with enough time on the pitch, he can take his game to the next level.

Since the disappointing stint with Liverpool, the Spaniard has come a long way which shows he is a fighter and possesses the ability to grow. The addition of Suso could be vital for the Lilywhites if they want to compete for trophies once again next term.

Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to strengthen the squad in the summer. The Argentine manager has arguably overachieved with Spurs this campaign with a depleted, injury-stricken squad taking them to a top 4 finish with the Champions League final yet to play. With concerns over the Argentine’s future, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy might be under pressure to spend big this summer.
