West Ham have reportedly tried to hijack Arsenal bid for Denis Suarez with a £20 million move but were swiftly rejected by the Spaniard, according to The Mirror.
According to the report, Arsenal are closing on securing a loan move for Suarez with the option of making the switch permanent in the future with Barcelona wanting an option to buy for £20 million in the summer.
