Arsenal have been offered the chance to sign FC Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez for £14m, according to reports
Arsenal have been offered the chance to sign FC Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez for £14m, according to reports in the British media.
The Independent is reporting that the midfielder is seeking a move away from Camp Nou in the new year in search of regular playing time.
The same story says that FC Barcelona have privately communicated to the player’s representatives recently that they are happy for him to leave in the new year.
It also claims that Suarez’s representatives have wasted no time in trying to broker a deal, and that he has been offered to top Premier League clubs – including Arsenal – for a cut-price fee of just £14m.
Suarez has barely featured for FC Barcelona this season and has only played eight minutes in La Liga this term as a substitute.
The 24-year-old has already played under Unai Emery. Suarez spent a season on loan at Sevilla under the Spanish coach after failing to break into the first team at FC Barcelona.
The same story says that Arsenal are currently “mulling over” the chance to sign Suarez, who could be a long-term replacement for Aaron Ramsey.
Ramsey’s current contract at Arsenal is due to expire in the summer and he doesn’t look close to signing a new deal.
