Arsenal have reportedly opened talks to sign Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez on loan.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal want to bring in Denis until the end of the season as they ‘can’t spend money’ this month.
However, the newspaper warns Barca are pushing for a compulsory purchase option to be included in any deal.
MD concludes next week will be ‘decisive’ in negotiations and that the Catalans could be prepared to give up their demands of a clause.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery coached Denis at Sevilla during the 2014-15 campaign, while the 24-year-old has seen just 41 minutes of action in La Liga and the Champions League this season.
