ARSENAL boss Unai Emery has dropped the biggest hint yet regarding the club’s interest in Denis Suarez.

Reports have emerged this week that Arsenal are closing in on a move for Barcelona outcast Suarez.

With Aaron Ramsey’s future uncertain, it seems Emery is keen to bolster his midfield options with an eye for the future.

At 24 years old, Suarez has been touted for a bright future but has struggled to break in to Barcelona’s team this season.

He has played just 17 minutes of action in La Liga this season, but did score twice in the 4-1 win over Cultural Leonesa last month in the Copa del Rey.

Emery is a keen admirer of Suarez, having worked with him during his time at Sevilla.

Arsenal would reportedly need to part with £20million to acquire the midfielder from Barcelona.

And Emery has spoken out about the club’s interest in signing him.

When asked how close a deal for Suarez is, Emery remained coy, saying: “I don’t know.”

However, he did concede that the club are actively looking to bring players in this month.

“I think the club is working for the possibility to take some players during the next month.”

And Suarez could easily slot in to Emery’s system along the front line.

“He was playing in his career and with me, winger right and left,” he said.

Ramsey’s future is no closer to being agreed but it looks increasingly likely that he will by the end of the season, when his current contract is set to run out.

The Wales international has failed to agree terms on a new deal with the Gunners.

Juventus have been holding talks with Ramsey’s representatives and reports have suggested contract terms have already been agreed.
