Despite reports at the weekend that Tottenham could wreck Arsenal’s move for Denis Suarez, Sport in Spain claim the player has only been talking to Arsenal and has no interest in any other clubs.
Tottenham are interested in a move for Barcelona’s Malcom and reports from the country at the weekend claimed that if that move went through Barcelona would be unwilling to allow Suarez to leave for Arsenal.
Fear not, however, as it seems the move is ‘imminent’ if Sport are to be believed today.
In addition to stating that the move is about to happen any day now, they also write [via Google translate], “The footballer already gave days his approval to his move to Arsenal days ago and was missing for finalizing the agreement between clubs. The talks are advanced, and everything points to that early this week might bring [the deal to a close].”
“In any case, the priority in these moments for Denis is to find a destination where he can enjoy football again.
“Talks between the clubs have been more fluid in the wake of the decision taken by the player only to move from Barça to play at the Emirates. Denis did not want to try another team where there existed the risk of not enjoying minutes. In return, Unai Emery gave him [reassurances] that Arsenal would have the opportunities that he has been denied by Ernesto Valverde. The technical Blaugrana was informed that the transfer is to close to the gate and for this reason [Suarez] not included in the list of summoned for the party of yesterday in front of the Leganés.”
In other words, Suarez has made it clear he wants to move to Arsenal, the deal is almost agreed and that is why he was not included in the Barcelona squad for their game against Leganes on Sunday.
Barca won 3-1.
