Arsenal are close to completing the signing of Denis Suarez from FC Barcelona, according to Gianluca di Marzio.

Unai Emery is a keen admirer of Suarez having previously worked with him during his time at Sevilla.

The Spanish manager is keen to bring in another midfielder given Aaron Ramsey’s contract situation and Mesut Ozil’s recent performances.

The 24-year-old is a versatile player who can feature as number 8, a number 10 or even as a winger.

However, at Barcelona this season, he has struggled for game time playing just 17 minutes of La Liga action.

Therefore, both clubs are keen to get the move over the line.
