Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, according to football expert Gianluca Di Marzio.

It’s reported that the Gunners are going to pay £14million for the 24-year-old who worked with boss Unai Emery during a loan spell at Sevilla.

Serie A duo AC Milan and AS Roma were also claimed to be interested in the player but it seems the Premier League club have won the race for his signature.

The playmaker has found opportunities hard to come by at the Camp Nou this season, playing just 41 minutes in all competitions.

Emery is keen to add a creative midfielder to his squad with Aaron Ramsey set to leave the Emirates at the end of the campaign when his contract expires.

Emery is keen to recruit a midfielder to replace Aaron Ramsey, who will leave in the summer.

And despite a lack of appearances for the La Liga champions this term, the Spanish boss knows what qualities his fellow countryman will bring.

Suarez has experienced English football before, spending two years at Manchester City where he made one League Cup and one FA Cup appearance.
