Hi Eds and Reds

Could someone fill me in on Suso's situation please. First I hear he was part of the Moreno deal, Now I hear he's going to sign for Porto.

Is he no longer wanted by us or Have porto offered Liverpool an acceptable bid that we couldn't refuse.

Seems weird that 1 of our brightest prospects is suddenly available for a transfer.

Cheers in advance.

{Ed002's Note - It was always going to be the case that he would want assurances and Rodgers would not be able to do that, espaecially given they are looking to add Lallana to the squad. Liverpool will sell him and have been approached by Borussia Moenchengladbach and Porto - although Borussia Moenchengladbach now have their minds set on another player.}

I think there is way too much hype about Suso. Sure he is a great prospect but can he step up like Sterling has?

If LFC really wanted to keep Suso then he would not be offered as part of deals or being moved on by selling him.

Funny how no clubs in Spain are interested in taking Suso permanently. Wonder why?

Please make sure we have a buy back option on him. I think with game time in a good team he could develop into a star.

{Ed002's Note - That is really, really unlikely.}

Is there any particular reason why Liverpool wouldn't have a buy-back option? It seems like the sensible thing to do.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, but I really don't want to explain as it will upset folks again.}

At least put a first option clause. Not as good but at least we get first dibs if he's up for sale

{Ed002's Note - It is not going to happen.}

I think it would be a shame if we sold Suso. Yes he hasn't had the same impact Sterling had. But I don't think he had the same amount of time on the pitch as Raheem. Considering we had pretty much run out of steam by the last 3 games, Suso could've helped the squad. More so than Moses, Cissohko & Aspas did IMO. I'm not having a direct go at those players, I just feel Suso is a better option. Of course he won't play every game if he stats, but. We are trying to build a competitive squad capable of trying to do well on 4 fronts. A centre midfield squad of Gerrard, Allen, Can, Suso, Hendo, Lallana & Lucas (if he isn't sold) is a pretty decent mix.
