Premier League giants Chelsea FC are eyeing move to sign FC Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, according to a report from England.
Report as published by The Daily Mirror is reporting that the West London club are preparing for life after Fabregas leaves the club following interest from AC Milan.
The same article also states that Maurizio Sarri has made it clear to his side’s board that he doesn’t want the former Barcelona and Arsenal midfielder be sold until a replacement is signed. To sign Suarez, Chelsea are expected to pay around £15m.
Suarez, a former Manchester City playmaker, has struggled to break into FC Barcelona’s team in the current season. The midfielder has netted eight goals in 58 appearances across all competition since he joined the La Liga club in 2016.
He was a regular figure for the Barcelona team in 2016/17 and 2017/18 but he has been out of favor throughout the most of 2018/19 season.
FC Barcelona signed Suarez in a £3.5m deal from Villarreal in the 2016 summer transfer window. Suarez made one appearance in the FA Cup and the League Cup at Manchester City before his move to Villarreal.
Chelsea FC have a lot of depth in the middle of the park given that Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Ross Barkley, Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are competing for a starting spot.
