AC Milan midfielder Suso revealed he has a release clause in his contract in an interview with Sky Sports, sparking interest from former club Liverpool.
The Spaniard joined the seven-time European Champions from The Reds in 2015 for just €1 million.
“I’m playing every game at Milan, maybe it’s not the same as before but we’re improving and growing,” Suso told Sky Sports.
“I could have left, but I stayed and I’m very happy. There’s a release clause but I’m happy at Milan.”
Despite an influx of players at Milan after a summer spending spree reaching nearly €200 million, Suso has maintained his position as one of the most important players in Vincenzo Montella’s squad.
The 24-year-old is AC Milan’s top scorer in Serie A this season, scoring five times in 12 appearances.
His rise to prominence in Italy has led to a debut appearance for the Spanish national team, starting in Spain’s recent friendly against Russia.
Former club Liverpool have taken notice of his form, with rumours of a potential return to Anfield permeating, but The Reds would require a lavish outlay of €50 million (£44 million) for his services.
Perhaps the transfer fee, which is Suso’s reported release clause, won’t be as much of an issue for Jurgen Klopp if Barcelona are successful in their pursuit of Philippe Coutinho, who Liverpool won’t let go for anything short of astronomical.
