ARSENAL will reportedly continue talks with Barcelona on Monday about the possible loan signing of Denis Suarez.
The 25-year-old is surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp, and is believed to be keen on a move to join the Gunners this month.

Suarez is understood to have already agreed terms with the North London giants, but the club cannot afford Barca's mere £10milllion asking price.
Emery – who is eyeing up a reunion with Suarez following their spell at Sevilla together – recently revealed that Arsenal have no money to spend on permanent transfers.
And according to Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, Emery will push for a deal that included an option to buy at the end of the season.
He tweeted: "Arsenal is continuing to talk with Barcelona for Denis Suarez (agreement with Sanllehi).

Suarez has been a peripheral figure this season under Ernesto Valverde – playing just 17 minutes of La Liga football.
Emery is believed to have identified the player as a potential replacement for Aaron Ramsey, while he can also play as a winger, a position the club desperately need.
