Arsenal are initially considering signing him on a permanent basis this month, but their high spending in the summer prevented the Gunners from doing so.

Real Betis have tried to convince Suarez for him to remain in the Spanish La Liga, but he has concluded his mind to move to Arsenal according to the report by Guardian UK.

Denis Suarez's current deal at Barcelona will expire in the summer of 2020, and the Catalan club are trying to thigh him down to a longer deal.

Barcelona are currently topping the Spanish La Liga standings with 49 points after 21 games played this season losing only two ties.

Arsenal on the other hand are occupying fifth position on the Premier League table with 44 points after 23 games played this season.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Premier League giants Chelsea were said to have been given a clear lead in the £45m transfer battle between them and AC Milan over the signing of Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez.

Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri is said to be a fan of the 25-year-old Spaniard and wants him to be part of his squad before the January 2019 transfer window closes.

According to the report, AC Milan want the signing of Denis Suarez on loan in January, but Barcelona are not interested in such business.
