Arsenal rival Chelsea for smart loan transfer of La Liga talent

Arsenal are reportedly considering a loan swoop for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez as they lack funds to make a permanent signing in this January’s transfer window.

The 24-year-old has long looked a promising talent at the Nou Camp, but is now at the age where he needs to be playing regularly in order to fulfil his potential.

This doesn’t look like happening for him any time soon at Barcelona, which has led to plenty of speculation that he could be on the move this January.

The latest is that Arsenal are interested in Suarez as they seek to strengthen in midfield as Aaron Ramsey looks set to leave on a free at the end of the season, according to BBC Sport.

Suarez seems a good fit for Arsenal and even as a temporary signing could prove a great piece of business for Unai Emery’s side.

The Daily Mirror also linked the Spain international with Chelsea recently, as a potential replacement for Cesc Fabregas.

It remains to be seen how this transfer battle could pan out, but one imagines the Gunners would be better-placed to guarantee Suarez the kind of playing time he surely craves.

Chelsea already have quality players like Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic as options in central midfield.
