In-form Milan winger’s formidable stretch of form has not gone unnoticed as Suso went on to net five goals and register six assists in 14 La Liga games this season.
Former Liverpool man has managed to impress under Vincenzo Montella displaying incredible consistency and high-level of quality which ultimately got him under the radar of La Liga giants Atletico Madrid, according to reports from the Spanish media outlet AS.
Despite their ongoing FIFA transfer ban, which prevents Diego Simeone from making any transfer moves until January, Rojiblancos are believed to be keeping a close eye on Suso who is viewed as the ideal addition to Atletico’s talent-laden attacking department.
The 23-year-old Spanish international is also eyed as potential replacement for French hot-shot Antoine Griezmann who is continually being linked with a move away from Vicente Calderon.
Suso arrived in Italy back in 2014-15 season during which he made only 5 Serie A appearances before being loaned out to Genoa the following season.
