Liverpool winger Suso could sign a pre-contractual agreement with Italian outfit AC Milan in January.
This has been reported by the Daily Star, who have suggested that the wide-man has in-fact already agreed to join Milan, with his current contract at Anfield set to come to an end at the end of this season.
On the way out
However, it's not certain as to whether Milan will look to bring the youngster, who was on loan at Liga outfit Almeria last term, to the Serie A in January or wait and get him on a free next summer.
The same report has suggested that the Merseyside outfit rejected Milan's attempts to bring the 20-year-old to the club in this previous transfer window, with it being suggested that the club wanted to take the forward on a season-long loan deal.
However, it appears that Liverpool were only interested in letting him go on a permanent deal as they looked to cash in on the youngster they signed from Cadiz in 2010. Now, though, the club may have to lose the tricky winger for nothing if Milan are to get their way.
It's no surprise that Suso is surplus to requirements at Anfield, with boss Brendan Rodgers having an array of talent to choose form on Merseyside. The likes of Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Lazar Marković will all be competing for places in the Reds' front line this term.
Liverpool fans will certainly be hoping that the pace of Sterling and Co. continue to light up the Premier League as the club look to go one better after securing a runners up spot last term.
Despite losing to Manchester City in their second league clash, the Reds hit back with a fine win over Tottenham last weekend and will be looking to pick up another win against Aston Villa on September 13 after the international break.
The Reds will then embark upon a European campaign with a home match against Bulgarian side Ludogorets Razgrad in the group stages of the Champions League. It's unlikely, however, that Suso will play a key role in this season's adventure.
