Liverpool youngster Suso wants to return to the club next season and fight for a place in the first-team.
And the 20-year-old playmaker is keen to sign a new long-term Liverpool contract to commit his future to the club.
Suso is currently enjoying a hugely successful loan spell in La Liga with Almeria - he’s scored two goals and provided seven assists for his temporary employers.
But the young Spanish starlet wants to make an impression at Anfield next season - and is ready to signal his intention to stay put by penning a new contract.
“I’m enjoying it a lot [playing in Spain],” Suso told the Liverpool Echo. “I wanted to play every game this year and get a lot of minutes. Playing in the First Division in Spain is a good experience for me. Next season I’ll be a new player.
Suso broke into the Liverpool first-team under Brendan Rodgers and played a handful of matches for the Anfield boss.
But with the arrival of Iago Aspas, Victor Moses and Luis Alberto among others last summer, Suso felt his development would best be served away from Anfield.
“At the beginning of the season, before preseason, I was talking with Brendan and we were thinking that the best option for me was to go to a team on loan for a year, improve and learn from other players.
“I didn’t want to stay at Liverpool and be on the bench - I wanted to play every game.
“It’s a dream to play at Anfield every weekend and in the Champions League, it’s the best option that can happen. I would like to sign a new contract with Liverpool and stay there for many years.”
Suso was one of several academy players to graduate to the first-team under Rodgers. The likes of Andre Wisdom, Raheem Sterling and Jon Flanagan all made their debuts as well, with Flanagan and Sterling now firmly established as first-team regulars.
