Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will reportedly sell a number of players during the summer transfer window, with Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto set to leave the club after only 12 months at Anfield. There may also be exits for senior players Daniel Agger and Pepe Reina, but perhaps a greater wrench for Liverpool fans will be to see Suso depart.
Suso has spent the season on loan with Almeria in La Liga and has impressed during his spell there; contributing seven assists and scoring three times as the club have fought against relegation to the Segunda. But there may not be a place for the 20-year-old when he returns.
According to The Guardian, Suso is one of several Liverpool players at risk of being cut adrift as Rodgers sets about conducting an overhaul of his squad before next season. Suso had recently spoken of a hope that Liverpool’s return to the Champions League and, with it an increase of games, may lead to greater opportunities for him at Anfield next season.
However, this may not be the case for the young Spaniard. If Liverpool have strength in one particular area then it is midfield, and the competition for places in these positions resulted in Suso being sent to Almeria last summer.
Liverpool were thought to have completed quite a coup when they were able to confirm the capture of Suso as a 17-year-old from Cadiz, with Barcelona and Real Madrid also having been linked with the player. His first-team chance came in Rodgers’ maiden campaign with Liverpool as Suso earned 14 Premier League appearances.
