Arsenal are all set to enter the final phase in their pursuit of Barcelona’s Dennis Suarez, who did feature in the Blaugrana’s latest win
Arsenal have agreed on a Deal to sign Denis Suarez on loan and then permanently in the summer, according to Guillem Balague. The Gunners have made Suarez their No 1 target this month as Unai Emery looks to get his side up to speed for a top-four challenge.
He worked with Suarez at Sevilla and hopes he can bring more fluidity to the wings at the Emirates.
Balague says a deal has been agreed between the player and the club, but that Barcelona are delaying things, so he can be used in the cup.
He tweeted: “On Denis Suarez. Arsenal agree to loan him for €2-3m and €20-25 in the summer for a permanent. It’s what Denis wants. But FCB not giving the green light yet (to use him in Cup?).”
Earlier today it emerged that Suarez’ girlfriend was in London sparking talk the deal was close to being announced. However, nothing has been confirmed yet. Arsenal are having to rely on loan signings this month due to their huge wage bill.
Arsenal cannot spend to due to FFP regulations after missing out on the Champions League for a second year in a row. The wage bill is at an all-time high and spending must be curbed until they got back into the top competition or sell some key players.
The Suarez deal will be a loan and then made permanent in the summer despite Barcelona insisting on doing a permanent deal this month. The Spaniard was included in the Barcelona squad to face Levante last night where they won 3-0 and came on after 77 minutes for Ousmane Dembele.
Gunners are set to bring Suarez to Emirates who himself is eager to play under his former coach. Also, the player didn’t get enough play time at Barcelona but La Liga champions are holding him up for a cup run and also they want a permanent transfer of 25-year old Spanish player that Arsenal cannot afford at a moment.
