Pablo Sarabia was one of Sevilla’s best players last season. The versatile attacking midfielder enjoyed a stellar campaign with Los Nervionenses in 2018-19, where he accounted for 23 goals and 17 assists across all competitions, and that allowed him to sign for Ligue 1 giants PSG.

However, Sarabia’s departure has left a giant hole in Sevilla’s attacking midfield. The Andalucian side has strengthened accordingly ahead of the upcoming campaign, but they haven’t been able to replace the creativity that disappeared with Sarabia’s departure. And that’s why they have set their sights on potentially signing Suso, who plays for AC Milan.

The Spaniard has been one of the top playmakers in the Serie A over the past few years, and he used to play for Liverpool in the past so he hasn’t had the chance to prove him in his native country. That might change given the context of both clubs involved in this hypotetical negotiation. Sevilla have the money to sign Suso, and Milan must sell to comply with the FIFA Financial Fair Play Rules.

Suso is coming off a great year with AC Milan where he bagged eight goals to go along with nine assists in all competitions. At 25 years old, he is proven enough to determine if he can play at a top league, but also young enough to believe there’s room for improvement in the future.
