Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez is in London as he edges closer to Premier League giants Arsenal before the end of the January transfer window on Thursday.
According to respected Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, Denis Suarez is in London to finalise his move to Arsenal.
Earlier reports had claimed that the Gunners have made a breakthrough in talks with Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona over a move for Denis Suarez.
It was a dramatic turn in events after the deal was initially called off due to the Gunners’ inability to commit to a permanent transfer.
Barcelona were open to the idea of letting Denis Suarez leave the club for Arsenal on loan until the end of this campaign with the obligation to sign him permanently.
Arsenal were adamant that they can only do a loan deal for the 25-year-old with the option to buy.
The Spanish giants eventually gave in to the transfer terms from Arsenal due to the player’s desire to reunite with Gunners boss Unai Emery whom he played under while he was at La Liga club Sevilla.
Guillem Balague said that Arsenal will pay a €2.3m loan fee for Denis Suarez with the option to buy the Spaniard permanently for €25m.
