Barcelona boss, Ernesto Valverde, has given a clear hint that Denis Suarez could be off this month, the UK Mirror reports.
Arsenal manager, Unai Emery is hoping to have a deal for Suarez completed by the weekend. The Gunners have been helped by Barca’s surprise capture of Kevin Prince Boateng yesterday.
Valverde has now admitted it now means first-team squad players are set to be allowed to leave.
“We are happy with the squad but there are always possibilities for departures for those who maybe do not feature as often.
“Those players could stay here and we would be happy or they could leave in search of more opportunities, we will evaluate all possibilities for them.
“We work internally and there is a lot of planning involved of which I am a part, but we will see how the market progresses,” Valderde said.
