Denis Suarez move to Arsenal is a ‘goer’
Arsenal remain in the hunt for Denis Suarez and the move has been described as a ‘goer’ by Sky Sports transfer news reporter Dharmesh Sheth.
Suarez is keen on the move but the Gunners are insisting on a loan move with an option to buy, while Barcelona are insistent on it being an obligation to buy.
Here’s the latest on the Gunners’ January transfer plans.
“As it stands, we’re talking about Arsenal only wanting loans,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.
“They want to bring Barcelona’s Denis Suarez in on a loan move.
“They know each other very well, Emery and Suarez, he played under Emery in the 2014/15 season when he was on loan at Sevilla.
“Barcelona would, we think, be happy to do a deal, but provided it came with an obligation to buy Denis Suarez in the summer.
“We’re told that Suarez wants to do the move and he’s not getting much game time at Barcelona. He’s just made his seventh appearance of the season [in all competitions].
“That’s where it stands with that one, he wants to come as far as we’re concerned.
“They’re also linked, Arsenal, unsurprisingly with a guy called Eva Banega. Again, Sevilla.
“Emery described him as a very good player when he was asked about him and they know each other as well from their time in Spain.
“Banega, Suarez or maybe both? I think Suarez looks like a goer.”
