Chelsea looking to sign versatile attacking midfielder in January



Chelsea are looking to launch a move for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez ahead of the January transfer window according to the news in Spain. The Marca carries a report that the Blues are ready to swoop in for the Spanish midfielder for a cut-price fee in January.

Suarez is currently down the pecking order at the Camp Nou and is rumoured to have fallen out of favour under manager Ernesto Valverde. Chelsea are weighing their options in the midfield due to the uncertain future of current loanee Mateo Kovacic.

The Croatian international has been brilliant so far but is expected to cost around £50million to make the deal permanent. Denis Suarez offers similar attributes and has experience playing for big sides. He also has Premier League experience as he played for Manchester City during his academy years.

This transfer looks like a possibility as Blues have the opportunity to get a quality midfielder with the capacity to improve in Suarez. A fee within the range of £20-25 million has been mentioned as the asking fee from Barcelona for the 24-year-old midfielder.

Suarez has featured just once for Barcelona this campaign in the 1-0 win of Deportivo Leonesa in the Copa del Rey.
