Report: Denis Suarez open to Arsenal move despite Barcelona interest

Villarreal, El Madrigal

The midfielder has impressed for Villarreal and Arsenal, as well as Tottenham Hotspur, have been linked with a move.

Villarreal midfielder Denis Suarez is still open to moves to either Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur, despite Barcelona moving to bring him back, reports Mundo Deportivo.

The Villarreal midfielder has been in fine form for the Yellow Submarine this season as they have finished in the top four of La Liga.

That has sparked interest from former club Barcelona, who are keen to bring him back to the Nou Camp.

They look almost certain do it, too, having placed a release clause in the deal that saw him move to Villarreal in the first place and already opening negotiations.

However, Suarez is stalling on a move as he seeks assurances from Barca boss Luis Enrique about how he would maintain his current progress in the Catalans' star-studded squad.

While that is talked over, Suarez has not closed the door on a potential move elsewhere, and according to Mundo Deportivo, he would still be open to interest from both Arsenal and Tottenham.

The London duo have both been linked with a move for him in recent weeks and he is open to making the switch if he decided a return to Barcelona is not for him.
