The Gunners are claimed to be closing in on a deal for what would be the club’s first signing of the January transfer window. 

Unai Emery proved that he prefers to move proactively in the transfer window as he secured his new signings before pre-season even kicked off in the summer.

The Arsenal manager is expected to try to take care of business in the transfer market as early as possible with a tough run of fixtures set to come for his side.

Thus, Sky Sports are reporting that the Gunners are now ‘close’ to agreeing a transfer deal with Barcelona to sign Denis Suarez.

The 24-year-old briefly worked with Unai Emery during his time at Sevilla and the new Arsenal boss is interested reuniting with him.

Suarez has not been enjoying much playing time at the Camp Nou and therefore the midfielder is interested in a move elsewhere for more playing time.
