Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez is said to hold the ambition of joining Premier League side Arsenal despite the recent interest from the likes of Chelsea and AC Milan.

The 24-year-old returned to the Blaugrana from Villareal two years ago and during this period, he has managed 64 appearances for the club across all competitions.

Despite this, he has dropped down the pecking order this campaign with not a single minute of gametime in the Spanish La Liga and this has spread the speculation that he could pursue a fresh challenge in January.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Suarez is attracting interest from both Chelsea and AC Milan in recent weeks but the Spaniard is rather said to fancy a switch to north London with the Gunners.

Suarez, who was initially with the Manchester City youth setup, has contributed six goals and 10 assists since arriving at Barcelona from Villareal in the summer of 2016.
