Arsenal are closing in on a move for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez in this January transfer window.
This is according to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio via his official website.
Denis Suarez, 24, has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal in the past few months dating back to when Unai Emery took over as the Arsenal manager in the summer.
The Spanish tactician replaced long serving manager Arsene Wenger last year after putting pen to paper on a three-year deal that runs until the end of the 2020/21 season.
Unai Emery is no stranger to Denis Suarez who played for him while he was the Sevilla manager.
The Spanish international player is keen to leave Barcelona this month after failing to break into the first XI under manager Ernesto Valverde.
The 24-year-old has hardly featured for Barcelona in the league this season with the majority of his playing minutes coming in the cup competitions (Spanish Copa Del Rey and Champions League).
It was revealed that he has agreed to join the Gunners on a short-term loan until the end of this season.
He could be a replacement for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey who has been attracting serious interest from Italian Serie A giants Juventus.
