Chelsea news: Barcelona ace Suarez looking to leave as Sarri attempts to finally seal deal

CHELSEA are interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, it has been claimed.

Suarez has been limited to one appearance in all competitions – the Copa del Rey win at Cultural Leonesa – this season.

The 24-year-old appears unlikely to break through under Ernesto Valverde and is considering a January exit.

According to MARCA, Suarez is attracting plenty of suitors ahead of the mid-season window.

Sarri attempted to sign Suarez on several occasions during his spell in charge of Napoli but failed to ever seal a deal.

The Italian is reportedly eager to bring him to Stamford Bridge, despite his plethora of midfield options.

Sarri already has Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Ross Barkley, Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Cesc Fabregas to choose from.

MARCA claim Sarri’s former club Napoli and Valencia will provide competition for Suarez.

A move to La Liga rivals Valencia would allow Suarez to link up with Marcelino again.

He worked with the 53-year-old during a loan spell at Villarreal in the 2015/16 campaign.

Suarez contributed five goals and 12 assists in 48 appearances for Villarreal.

The one-cap Spain international joined Barcelona from Manchester City in 2013.

He has played 64 times for the Nou Camp giants, chipping in with six goals and 10 assists.
