Deal Close: Arsenal close to signing Barcelona midfielder Suarez

Arsenal are close to completing the signing of Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez from Barcelona.

Sky Sports are reporting that Unai Emery is on the verge of being reunited with the highly-rated 24-year-old after the pair worked together at Sevilla.

One cap Spain international Suarez came through the ranks at Man City before returning to his homeland with Barcelona in 2013.

However, he would be loaned out to Sevilla as part of the deal that saw Ivan Rakitic move to the Nou Camp, before being sold to Villarreal in the summer of 2015.

Barcelona would exercise a buy back option in his contract to take him back to Catalonia though, after a season of eye-catching performances for Villarreal.

Suarez has gone on to make 46 La Liga appearances for Barca although he has never really been able to properly establish himself in Ernesto Valverde’s side.

Arsenal are reported to have beaten off competition from Serie A sides Roma and AC Milan to secure Suarez’s signature.
