Liverpool Opinion: why should Liverpool bring back Spaniard ace Suso?
One of the areas that need to be scrutinized is the midfield unit, which was completely lackadaisical last season. However, Klopp managed to lift the UCL trophy due to his top-class forwards and defenders.
Klopp highly relied on his defenders in the transition phase as midfielders like Naby Keita, Gini Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson cut a sorry figure in the Premier League the last term, which turned out be one of the reasons for their debacle in the final phase.
To solve this crisis once and for all, the Reds have to rekindle their interest in bringing back their former player Suso from AC Milan. The Spaniard was linked with a return to Anfield last season before the move fell at last. (h/t The Sun).
Why Suso is the right man for Liverpool?
Suso has been an integral part of the Milan side over the course, playing more than 100 matches. He notched up his best returns, however, over the past two seasons as he racked up 16 goals and 22 assists.
The Spaniard ended up as the third-highest assist provider in the Serie A the last term.
Statistically, Suso was a cut about the rest of his peers in Italy, with a pass success percentage of 82 and an average of 2.8 key passes per game and 1.9 dribbles.
Furthermore, the ex-Reds star is a proven match-winner, as he bagged 7 Man of the Match awards last season.
Suso prefers to play as an inverted winger but also doesn’t shy away from being a creative playmaker, the position which the Reds are in desperate need of.
The lack of creativity in the middle of the park amplifies the scoring burden on the forwards. That would be long gone if they can bring back their academy player next season.

He also possesses great counter-attacking threat and is adept at long-range shots, the attributes which make him a perfect fit for Klopp’s playing 11.
The Reds are yet to make their mark in the transfer window and their priority should be finding a creative midfielder/playmaker.
Suso is an optimistic option and a return to Anfield would help the German manager break the long-running Premier League trophy drought.
