DENIS SUAREZ appears to be one step closer to joining Arsenal after his agent urged Barcelona to let him leave the club.
The Gunners have been chasing the Barcelona outcast since the beginning of the transfer window as Unai Emery desperately tries to strengthen his side.
Arsenal are the favourites to sign Suarez on loan, with multiple outlets suggesting a potential permanent deal could be agreed in the summer when the north London side can afford the purchase.
And it looks like Emery may be one step closer to landing his man, after it emerged Suarez’s agent has asked Barcelona to let the midfielder join Arsenal this month.
Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira tweeted today: “This morning #DenisSuarez’s agent has asked #Barcelona to be sold to #Arsenal.
“Talks ongoing. #transfers #AFC.”
Arsenal chiefs claim they cannot afford permanent deals this month and will only bring in loans following an excessive spending spree in the last 12 months.
But speaking recently, Emery refused to rule out a deal for the former Sevilla star.
