Arsenal could be ready to pull the trigger on signing Barcelona playmaker Denis Suarez for a cut-price £14million, according to the Independent.
he newspaper claim the Spain international has been offered the Premier League club as he looks for a January transfer in his search for regular playing time at the highest level.
The Independent report Barcelona have told Suarez and his representatives this week he can find a new club, with the Gunners “mulling over” whether to try and sign him.
Good move for Arsenal?
Perhaps. Suarez is at an age, 24, when he is entering his peak and will have plenty of good habits after graduating from the Manchester City ranks and spending four years on and off at Barcelona. He has had successful spells on loan at Sevilla and Villarreal, and 109 La Liga appearances demonstrate that he is far from an also-ran. Suarez’s statistics at Barcelona for a creative midfielder are also impressive – eight goals and 10 assists from 68 appearances. But is he of the same quality as Aaron Ramsey? There must be a huge question mark over than, despite the clear technical ability he has. If Suarez was a world-beater, he would not have spent the season on the sidelines.
