Reports suggest that Chelsea have moved ahead of AC Milan in the race for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez.
Denis Suarez is having his second stint with Barcelona but has struggled for playing time this season, with just two appearances to his name in all competitions.
AC Milan are keen on signing the player on a loan deal in January with an option to sign him permanently in the summer.
However, the Blues are interested in signing Denis Suarez on a permanent deal when the window opens in January.
Apparently, the decision has given them the edge over the Serie A outfit as Barcelona are believed to be interested in a cash deal in January.
