Arsenal, Chelsea negotiate for Barcelona’s Denis Suarez

Premier League clubs Arsenal and Chelsea are negotiating to sign out-of-favour Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez in January, report local Catalan media.

RAC1 say the out-of-favour central midfielder is speaking to both London clubs and looks set to leave the Camp Nou due to a lack of playing time.

Diario Sport meanwhile claim three English clubs are in the running but neither are those mention on RAC radio, with Everton, West Ham and Watford all holding an interest.

The midfielder, formerly of Sevilla and Villarreal, joined the club from Manchester City in 2013 with Marca reporting last month that 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’.

The 24-year-old has played just 17 minutes of La Liga action this campaign and looks set to depart.
