Arsenal Close In On Denis Suarez

Suarez On Verge Of Loan Move

Denis Suarez Arsenal transfer news

Arsenal look set to sign Barcelona forward Denis Suarez with the Catalan side now set to agree to a loan deal.

Suarez has been linked for most of the past week with interest from the Gunners. However, Barcelona have dug in their heels and demanded a £20million transfer fee.

But according to the Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo, Suarez is determined to force through a move to the Emirates and Barca look set to grant him his wish.

Suarez will join on an initial loan deal but with an option to purchase at the end of the season.

The 25-year-old has found game time hard to come by this season with just 17 minutes of league football to his name. However, he came on midway through the second half of this week’s Copa del Rey first leg defeat to Levante and was by far the best player on the pitch.

Gunners Want £18m For Early Ramsey Move

Meanwhile, Arsenal are reported to have told Juventus that Aaron Ramsey will only be allowed to leave this month if the Serie A side are prepared to pay €20million (£18million).

Ramsey is set to join Juventus on a free transfer at the end of the season but rumours suggest the Italian club are keen to bring forward the switch.

Both Sami Khedira and Mehdi Benatia have been named as possible makeweights in any possible deal. But it now all seems to be down to cash.
