Suso has been linked with Chelsea in a swap deal involving AC Milan loanee Tiemoue Bakayoko.
Spain winger Suso, 24, has rebuilt his career with Milan after flopping for Liverpool.
And France midfielder Bakayoko, also 24, is hoping to have similar success after AC borrowed him from Chelsea for the season.
Now Italian football website calciomercato say the Blues are interested in luring Suso, whose list of reported admirers has included Real Madrid, Tottenham, Juventus and Napoli.
Even Liverpool have been trailing Suso in the last two transfer windows – after he left Anfield for Milan in 2015.
Suso’s reported release clause of around £35million has not put off admirers so far.
Calciomercato also speculate that more deals between Milan and Chelsea could arise in the future – now that new Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has established some links between the two clubs.
Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas and ex-Brazil defender David Luiz, both 31, might be options for AC over the next 12 months as their contracts are winding down.
Meanwhile, Milan have an agreement to turn Bakayoko’s temporary switch into a permanent deal next summer if all parties are happy with that.
Otherwise, the anchorman who helped Monaco to the Ligue 1 title two seasons ago faces a fight to revive his career – at both club and international level.
