Barcelona footballer Denis Suarez has decided he wants to leave the Catalan club and prefers a move to Arsenal, according to reports.
According to reports in Spain, Suarez is fed up with his situation at Barcelona and had greenlit a transfer to the Premier League.
EPL giants Arsenal is cited as Suarez’s favored destination, with the 24-year-old having played under Unai Emery at Sevilla.
Aaron Ramsey is the one big name that could be on the move, with January the final time Arsenal can cash in on the midfielder.
Suarez could be a direct replacement for Ramsey, having been deployed further forward by Emery in his time at Sevilla.
The midfielder is yet to feature in La Liga matches for Barca this season, with his only action coming in the Copa del Rey. Suarez is deemed surplus under Ernesto Valverde.
The Real Betis game showed how far he is down the pecking order because Philippe Coutinho’s injury and Ousmane Dembele’s illness didn’t even give him a path into the team due to Arturo Vidal, Munir and Malcolm being used as substitutes ahead of him.
The Spaniard has asked his representatives to talk about his future with the club and decide if he should seek a move. He will not leave in January but could depart the club next summer.
His first season back did see him make 36 appearances in all competitions and the following season that number declined to 27.
Suarez has been linked with numerous clubs in the past. Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri would like to sign him, while Marcelino would be happy to have him at Valencia.
The Barca footballer may relish a move to England as he has Premier League experience. The midfielder spent two years in Manchester City’s academy system before returning to Spain with Barcelona.
