And reports claim Monchi tried to sign Suso during his time as Roma’s sporting director and could try to do so again if he takes up the same role at the Emirates.

It is believed Milan want to keep Suso, who has a £34.3million release clause, but a possible sale would free up funds for the Serie A club to spend on new players.

The 25-year-old has scored seven goals and registered eight assists in 30 appearances this season.
