Suarez is reported to be close to signing a deal with Arsenal, according to reports from Sky in Italy.
The Spaniard, who played under Unai Emery at Sevilla, has previously been the subject of interest from clubs in Italy, including AC Milan and Roma.
It is understood Emery is keen to work with Suarez once more and the player would be happy to reunite with his former coach.
Emery said: “I think the club is working for the possibility to take some players who can help us during these next four months. Maybe the transfer market can help us with a centre-back, but it is not easy because also Mavropanos is also coming back after injury.
“Also a winger, right or left, one player can help us in this position.
“He was playing in his career, and also with me also, as a right or left winger.”
