Arsenal, Chelsea to battle for Barcelona’s Denis Suarez

Midfielder Denis Suarez will leave Barcelona this January with Arsenal and Chelsea both keen on a deal, according to Marca.

The 24-year-old had been strongly linked with a move away from the Camp Nou but despite remaining at the club, he only played 32 minutes of first-team football this season outside of the Copa del Rey.

The midfielder, formerly of Sevilla and Villarreal, joined the club from Manchester City in 2013 with Marca reporting Barca are open to selling from €10m upwards.

Suarez has only 18 months left on his deal at the Catalan giants while Valencia are also said to hold an interest but the Premier League ‘is the most likely destination’.
