Midfielder linked to Bridge
Chelsea's chances of landing Denis Suarez from Barcelona in January will come down to the player himself.
Maurizio Sarri will have money to spend in the new year although Suarez has shown no inclination of moving on just yet, deciding instead to battle it out at the Catalan giants.
Reports in Spain claim that Barca would be willing to listen to interested parties who wanted to sign the midfielder, but the player himself says he has not intention of departing.
The 24-year-old has featured only in the Copa del Ray clash with Cultural Leonesa this season and has played no part in either La Liga or the Champions League.
Having featured on a regular basis for Luis Enrique's side, he appears to be out of favour under Ernesto Valverde's rule.
Following the departure of Andres Iniesta last summer, it was supposed to be his breakthrough season, but injury suffered in the US ruled him out of the start of the campaign and he has hardly featured since. Arsenal are also said to be keen on his services.
