Sky Sport reporter Dharmesh Sheth have laid an official claim that Arsenal are now very close to signing Denis Suarez.
The North London club are very involved in the winter transfer market willing to splash some cash having spotted some weak spots in the team.
The Arsenal boss Unai Emery in the transfer market this January seemed to more interested in adding reinforcements in the midfield rather than the leaky defence.
Since the beginning of the 2018/19 campaign, Suarez has only been able to register two appearances – coming on as a substitute in the two apps – for the Catalan giants.
The Spaniard will now be reunited with his former boss Emery at Arsenal. However, with the Gunners not willing to spill much cash on one single player Barcelona will be giving Suarez to Arsenal on a loan deal this winter with a £20m permanent switch during the summer.
The Sky Sports reporter Sheth claimed a deal is very close to being done.
He said: “As for arrivals at the Emirates.
“What a signing this could be. Sky in Italy claim Barcelona winger Denis Suarez is close to joining.
“Arsenal boss Unai Emery indicated at the weekend that the club are after a player who could operate on the right or left wing and he’s worked with Suarez before. The player spent a season on loan at Sevilla in 2014 when Emery was in charge.
“Interestingly Suarez travelled for yesterday’s game with Getafe but he didn’t make Barcelona’s 18-man squad.”
