Wenger wants at least one addition to bolster his midfield ranks, with Suarez an option.

The Atleti man has been used sparingly by manager Diego Simeone this term, and Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda has indicated that a switch to Arsenal is likely.

Suarez is seen as a short-term option by the north Londoners, with a move for William Carvalho believed to be the one Emirates Stadium chiefs want.

Wenger is also chasing a new centre-back, with Laurent Koscielny’s injury issues having exposed a lack of depth in the position this term.
