Newcastle transfer news.
The Spain international played a key role during the side’s La Liga title win last season as well as helping the side make it to the Champions League final.
However, this term he has found himself behind the likes of Gabi, Tiago, Raul Garcia and Saul Niguez in the pecking order and coach Diego Simeone looks set to move him on in the new year.
According to respected Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda, a former editor of Madrid-based paper Marca, Suarez ‘will almost certainly go in the winter transfer window’.
The 27-year-old is now being tipped to join Arsenal, who are in desperate need to land a defensive midfielder in order to secure Champions League football for the 17th straight season.
