FC Porto Target Liverpool Midfielder Suso

Manuel Queimadelos Alonso

Shortly after Liverpool offered him to Sevilla as part exchange for Alberto Moreno, there are substantial rumours that Suso could be on the verge of a move to FC Porto.

Liverpool fans who were concerned by reports that the club was trying to send Suso to Sevilla as part of a deal to bring Alberto Moreno to Anfield have more bad news today. This time it's out of Portugal, where O Jogo report that FC Porto are closing on a permanent deal for the young attacking midfielder who has only a year remaining on his Liverpool contract.

During his time in Spain there were conflicting reports on whether Suso did or didn't see his future at Liverpool and whether Liverpool was or wasn't going to seek to extend his deal. With the club now appearing on the verge of selling him to Porto after earlier looking to send him to Sevilla, it looks increasingly likely that for, whatever reason, there will be no new deal.

Suso's agent, Dani Rodriguez, has confirmed talks are ongoing with Porto, and in doing so makes it hard to deny what has become increasingly clear: Suso is for sale. With a year left on his contract, interest from the Portuguese league, and suggestions from Sevilla he was only worth a couple of million pounds, it would appear he's for sale for a quite low price.

About the only hope left for Liverpool fans who have watched Suso rise through the youth ranks and expected a long and fruitful career for him at the club will be that part of the reason for what appears likely to be a low sale price is that Liverpool will insist on including a buy-back clause for the Spanish playmaker.

Given Porto's history of buying players on the cheap and flipping them for a profit, such a clause—or at the very least a sizeable sell-on percentage—seems necessary from a Liverpool view if, for whatever reason, Suso's time at the club has come to an end. Sadly for the many who had high hopes for him, it increasingly appears that it has.
