London rivals Chelsea have emerged as favourites to sign an Arsenal target ahead of the upcoming transfer window scheduled to start as from the 1st of January.
Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez has repeatedly been linked with a transfer to the Premier League with clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea.
Earlier reports had revealed that the player favours a transfer to the Emirates Stadium ahead of other interested clubs.
Italian media outlet calciomercato claim that the Blues are favourites to sign the 24-year-old ahead of Italian Serie A giants AC Milan in a recent publication.
Denis Suarez has rarely played for Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona in the new campaign.
The Spanish international midfielder is surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp thus promoting transfer talks about him leaving the club in the New Year.
Sergio Busquets, Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic, Arthur and Rafinha Alcantara are all ahead of him in the midfield pecking order at Barcelona.
The aforementioned publication from calciomercato says that a fee of around €40m would be enough to sign him.
Italian Serie A giants AC Milan are also in the running for the player though the Rossoneri want to sign Denis Suarez on loan with a view to make the deal permanent next summer.
