According to a report by the Daily Mirror, Arsenal have a very good chance to land AC Milan midfielder Jesús Joaquín Fernández Sáenz de la Torre, known as Suso, as a potential replacement for the departing Aaron Ramsey.
Arsenal scouts have been watching Suso, valued at £40m.
The Gunners want a winger and Suso is being viewed as an alternative to Cengiz Under and Nicolas Pepe if #afc fail to land one of those two targets.

Suso is a 25 year old AC Milan lad, who has 30 appearances for the club this season. He has gained a lot of trust after coming from to Milan 5 years ago. Suso has been a starter for Gattuso’s side for the past 3 years after having put on some great displays in the midfield featuring in approximately 100 Serie A matches.
Suso has been majestic in the center of the Milan’s side dribbling his way forward, making decisive final passes, running into gaps and free spaces into the attacking third of the opponents defense. Everything about this player has been impressive and there was never a doubt that other clubs wouldn’t want a player with such talent in their side.
The former Liverpool man has been scoring some important goals for AC Milan. This is the quality of player Unai Emery would love to have in his side. Including Arsenal, their arch-rivals, Tottenham Hotspurs have also showed interest in him.

Last Saturday, Arsenal sent scouts to Italy to run the rule over Spanish international winger Suso in the Chievo – AC Milan game. There's interest but he's not our first choice winger target [@NicoSchira] 🥉 pic.twitter.com/i23qPeU11h

Arsenal are in need of a new midfielder as their talisman Aaron Ramsey has decided to depart from the Emirates at the end of the season. Suso is the perfect man to replace the departing man. Suso has played under Unai Emery back in the days in Sevilla but he wasn’t as sharp and prolific as he is now at AC Milan.
Arsenal themselves are in need of a midfielder after having some injury problems to their key players like Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The Emirates side would have to make huge offer to sign Suso this summer as there is a very little chance that the Italian side would let him leave for a cheap price in this footballing market.
With these things kept in mind, Arsenal should also look into their squad as they have bought in Denis Suarez in this winter transfer season. As of now there have been no reports stating that Unai Emery has been impressed with Denis and the game time also makes it clear. There’s seems a very little chance that Emery would prefer Denis in his team after this season unless something extraordinary happens which makes Suso an eminent signing for the Gunners.
Arsenal reportedly sent scouts to watch Suso during Milan’s 2-1 victory over Chievo on Saturday.
