Arsenal are ready to beat Tottenham to the signing of high rated Villareal midfielder Denis Suarez according to various reports this morning in the Spanish press. According to the reports, Barca are going to activate a £2.5 million buy back clause inserted in the player’s contract and resell to whoever bids the highest.
Arsenal are said to have made it clear to Barca they would want to sign the player should the asking price be reasonable. Mundo Deportivo reckons Tottenham were the forerunners for the signing of the player but with Arsenal now interested in him as well, a bidding war is set to eschew.
Denis Suarez is just 22 and with Santi Cazorla looking like he will be leaving Arsenal in 2017, Suarez is seeing as the long term replacement for the senior Spaniard. The 22 year old is said to be available for £15 million which doesn’t look like a fee that’s too much for Arsenal to pay.
And Arsenal fans will be happy if Arsenal can beat Tottenham to the signing of the player. And to be honest, I doubt any youngster will chose Sp*rs.
