Anfield outcast Suso set to be given lifeline by Portuguese giants.
One of Liverpool’s forgotten men, Spanish attacking midfielder Suso, is set to be given the chance to rebuild his career away from Merseyside, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Suso joined Liverpool in 2010 from hometown club Cádiz, bringing a burgeoning reputation with him from Spain as one of the country’s brightest young stars.
Despite promising displays in friendlies and for the club’s reserve side, Suso found his route to the first team blocked by more established players and a lack of faith from manager Brendan Rodgers.
Rodgers allowed the Spaniard to leave the club for the 2013/14 season, Suso joining La Liga side Almería on a season long loan deal. Despite a tough season for the club, he established himself as one of their key players and was key to Almeríá escaping relegation to Liga Adelante on the final day.
The diminutive creator had been touted as a player finally set to be given his chance at Anfield next season, with Rodgers needing additional cover for his side’s return to European football.
The prospective signing of Southampton’s Adam Lallana may end these hopes, however, putting another player in Suso’s position between him and the first team.
This seems to have opened the door for Porto, who are looking to reinforce a squad that disappointed in 2013/14 in both the Primeira Liga and Europa League.
