Premier League giants Chelsea have been given a clear lead in the £45m transfer battle between them and AC Milan over the signing of Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez.
Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri is said to be a fan of the 24-year-old Spaniard and wants him to be part of his squad when the January transfer window opens.
As per reports from RAC1, as cited on the Metro, the La Liga giants will allow the Spaniard to leave the club providing the right offer arrives in January.
Maurizio Sarri is said to be an admirer of the player and was keen to bring him to Stamford Bridge over the summer, however, his efforts were unsuccessful.
This season, Denis Suarez has not played in any Spanish La Liga game after losing his position in Ernesto Valverde’s starting XI.

The report also claims that Barca have told Suarez that they would be willing to sell him in January if they receive the right offer.
