According to the Daily Mail, Barcelona expect to finalise the deal shortly.
Despite his ban from all football activity for the next four months after his bite on Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini, Suarez will be allowed to complete a medical at the Catalan giants.
"The player cannot have any activity related to football, but a medical examination for a transfer yes - the sanction is not linked to transfer rights," said Claudio Sulser, head of Fifa's disciplinary committee.
A meeting took place between the two clubs in London on Wednesday and is believed to have gone well.
