Villarreal's Suarez on Barca's radar. says Luis Enrique

"It's possible that players will leave but it will be based on reinforcing the team".

"I don't dwell on memories and 2015 is in the past", Luis Enrique told the Barcelona website.

"We have been watching him", Luis Enrique told a news conference on Tuesday.

"He is a player that was at Sevilla but lacked minutes".

"There is an option for the summer, at the end of the season, but not until then", he explained to the press.

The 21-year-old is realising his early promise having struggled to adapt after being picked up by Manchester City, aged 17, having come through Celta Vigo's youth academy.

Barca have a buy-back option for the Villarreal winger, believed to be around £3.3million.

He has since gone on to become the all-time top scorer in the Catalonian derby in La Liga with 13 strikes and has scored six of the last 12 Barca goals against Espanyol in the league.

Roig says that a move for the 25-year-old could be in the offing, either in January or at the end of the season.

Luis Enrique has urged his players to keep improving as Barcelona prepare to take on local rivals Espanyol in their first game of 2016.

"There is very little difference between Europe's big clubs and we have to keep working hard".

But it did not stop them winning five trophies this calendar year and they will be able to hand debuts to off-season recruits Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal, who have not been able to play so far this season due to the sanction, from January 4.
