Denis Suarez

Chelsea are reportedly making move to sign Barcelona star Denis Suarez in the January transfer window.

The move is being pursued by the Blues manager Maurizio Sarri who is keen to work with the player after failing to have him at Napoli when he was working in Italy.

Sarri sees Chelsea as more attractive than the Italian Serie A side hence, he wants to make use of the opportunity to lure Suarez to the Stamford Bridge.

Also, the Italian boss is believed to be aware of the situation at Barcelona where Suarez is unhappy as a result of lack of playing time. He is expected to force a move should the Spanish side fail to let him go.

Despite his quality, Suarez has made just one appearance for the Spanish giants this season as he is far behind in the pecking order of the long list of the Barcelona midfield.

The West London side have been linked with a number of talents at the middle in the past weeks with Paris St Germain player Adrien Rabiot and Arsenal’s midfielder Aaron Ramsey making the list.

Meanwhile, Suarez will expect to face another dimension of competition at the Stamford Bridge should a deal fall through because of the many legs available in the team.
