Arsenal could seal last minute deal for Barca midfield playmaker


Arsenal are one of three clubs interested in securing Barcelona attacking midfielder Denis Suarez on a last minute deal before the close of the transfer window, according to Don Balon.

The Spanish publication reports that the Gunners, along with Tottenham and Roma, are keen to snap up the 23 year old with his future at the Camp Nou in doubt after being limited to three substitute appearances under new manager Ernesto Valverde so far this season.

The former Manchester City youth player signed for Barca from Villarreal for €3.5million on a buyback clause last summer, and went on to make 39 appearances in all competitions for Luis Enrique.

The signing of Paulinho from Guangzhou Evergrande and the re-emergence of Sergi Roberto as a central midfielder have meant opportunities in central midfield will be limited this campaign. Further forward, the arrivals of Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund and Gerard Deulofeu from Everton will make it even tougher for him to make a name for himself in more offensive positions.
