95% done deal, Arsenal to sign £14m-rated playmaker on Monday


Arsenal are close to completing their much-anticipated move for Spanish midfielder Denis Suarez who is wanted out of Camp Nou this month.

Daily Star report that the Gunners have reached a £14.2m agreement with the Catalans and they could confirm the player’s signature as soon as next week Monday.

The 25-year-old midfielder isn’t rated by Ernesto Valverde as the manager often left out of his match-day squad and he is said to be heading to the Emirates stadium.

Unai Emery worked with Denis while he was with Sevilla but both parties didn’t spend much time together before the player’s loan deal came to an end.

It should be recalled that Emery told reporters last week that he’s hoping to add more quality players to his attacking frontline but he’s facing a huge financial setback.

The Daily Star also said the Spanish tactician might sanction Mesut Ozil’s speculated move to Atletico Madrid so as to fund his move for Denis Suarez.

As a result of Arsenal’s financial instability, Unai Emery is set to pull out of the race for Belgian midfielder Yannick Carrasco.

According to the Sun, the Gunners are likely to cool their interest in the Dalian Yifang’s player having failed to meet his price tag.

Should the Gunners hierarchy fail to raise fund to boost their chances of winning Carrasco’s services, Manchester United will be in a firm position to capture the Belgian star.

The Red Devils are said to be eyeing a possible move for his services and Arsenal’s financial crises gives them a huge chance of luring Carrasco to Old Trafford.
