Wigan Interested in Suso Loan

The transfer window may be nearing its end, but there's still time for a few new rumours, key amongst them a potential loan deal that would send Suso to Wigan for the remainder of the season.

Though the transfer window is hours away from closing and Liverpool appear to have shut up shop after getting their business done early, growing rumours of late Wigan interest in taking Suso on loan for the remainder of the season have surfaced to add a hint of excitement.

With the arrivals of Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho as well as a return to fitness for Fabio Borini, Liverpool's attack is suddenly far more crowded than it was when Suso broke into the first team in the autumn. Add in that Liverpool were recently dispatched from the FA Cup and it means there would likely be few chances for the young Spaniard the rest of the way out.

Suso needs game time to continue his development, and with game time looking increasingly unlikely for him at Liverpool this season, a loan somewhere—anywhere, even—should be a priority. And a loan to Wigan to work with manager Roberto Martinez for the next few months would seem especially beneficial.

Hopefully, then, even if Ian Ayre and the rest of Liverpool's upper management team have given up on bringing in a third new signing before the window closes, Liverpool will be able to get this deal done in the next few hours.
