AC Milan look destined to part ways with Spain winger Suso in the January transfer window as the player is frustrated on the bench and is being jeered by the fans, the club is desperate to sell to fund acquisitions and the system of play has excluded the winger. As we reported here last week Monchi of Sevilla is interested in the winger and was looking to open talks. Now we have confitmations that Sevilla are pressing forward with their pursuit of Suso and will likely close a deal this week if both clubs are happy. Matteo Moretto of Sky Italia and Nico Schira of concur that the proposed formula for a deal would be an 18 month loan but the clubs needs to decide on the closing formula of the deal. The player has reportedly already said yes to Sevilla.

Milan would prefer an obligation to buy whereas Sevilla want the option to purchase. The final valuation is not clear based on the reports but Milan in recent weeks have looked open to 20-25 million Euros for the 26 year old. This is a significant drop from his 40 million valuation over the summer demonstrating the damaging impact of his poor performances to his value. Sempre Milan are also suggesting that Sevilla could include the redemption of Simon Kjaer valued at about 2.5 million euros into the deal to reduce the cost of acquiring Suso.
