Chelsea to beat Arsenal to the signing of playmaker

Maurizio Sarri may lure Denis Suarez from Arsenal to Chelsea, this report is
According to Spanish outlet Sport.

Suarez joined Arsenal on a loan move from Barcelona in the January transfer window but he has been dubbed as a flop following his inability to play regularly for Unai Emery.

The 25-year-old midfielder featured in six games for Arsenal this season but his performance is not worthy of a new contract. He left Barcelona because he was a bit-part player and following his unsuccessful loan spell at the Emirates, he may not return to the Camp Nou with the Premier League touted to be his next stop.

Although, he played under Emery at Sevilla, Sarri is also said to be an admirer of the playmaker and he could sanction a Chelsea deal for him when the transfer window comes alive.

Kovacic is expected to rejoin Real Madrid at the end of the season but the Blues are in the market for his replacement. Suarez may be signed as his replacement.

Meanwhile, Valencia have also been linked with the signing of Suarez but the Gunners are likely going to retain his services.
