The 24-year-old playmaker spent a season on loan playing under Unai Emery at Sevilla after struggling to break through at Barca, so the Arsenal boss is well aware of the midfielder’s talents.
Leading Spanish outlets have reported that Arsenal and Chelsea have made enquiries about Suarez but The Independent understands he was offered to a number of clubs as Barcelona look to get a decent fee for the diminutive playmaker.
Barca have previously sold the player to Villarreal with a buyback clause of £3.1m, which they exercised after one successful season in Castellon.
This time, however, it is understood that Barca are ready to make a clean break and they are instead seeking a sell-on percentage rather than an option to bring the player back to Spain.
