Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez has reportedly rejected a move to West Ham United in favour of holding out for Arsenal.
The Gunners are understood to have been in contact with Barcelona and Suarez's representatives over a possible deal this month, with the player keen on joining the North London outfit.
However, Barca are reluctant to let the 25-year-old leave on the cheap, despite him making only two La Liga appearances throughout the campaign so far.
The Spanish champions are willing to sanction a loan move until the end of the season, but only if the deal includes an obligation to buy for £20m in the summer.
The stalled negotiations allowed West Ham to attempt to hijack the deal with a £20m offer of their own, but The Mirror reports that Suarez has rejected that approach.
