Valencia boss Marcelino has all but ruled out a move for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez in the January transfer window.

Los Che have been linked with the 24-year-old this week, and Marcelino addressed the speculation in his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“It seems very difficult, not to say practically impossible, for Denis Suárez to play with us starting in January and for there to be an exit.

“I think it’s impossible because we have not opened that possibility. Then I catalogue it as impossible.”

Denis is yet to start in La Liga this season and that’s a situation that looks unlikely to change given the competition for places in midfield at the club.

There are other clubs reportedly interested in his services. Both Chelsea and Arsenal are believed to be interested ahead of the January transfer window.
