Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has disclosed that the transfer of Spanish midfielder Denis Suarez to Arsenal is almost a done deal.
The well respected journalist made this claim on the Transfer Talk podcast which was monitored by the Daily Star.
According to him, the Barcelona midfielder is on the verge of joining the North London giants and that the 24-year-old is exactly what Arsenal manager Unai Emery wants as he tries to boost his squad for the rest of the season.
This corroborates earlier reports which state that Denis Suarez has set his sights on a transfer to Arsenal.
The 25-year-old has expressed his desire to seek more first team opportunities elsewhere after failing to secure a regular spot in the Barcelona starting XI under manager Ernesto Valverde this season.
Despite his lack of regular playing time with Barcelona, the Spanish international has a good record for the Catalans.
He has scored eight goals and provided 10 assists in 69 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions.
Denis Suarez knows Arsenal boss Unai Emery well from his time with Spanish La Liga giants Sevilla.
He can play either on the left wing or the right wing and can also play as central midfielder.
