Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez wants Arsenal move

Suarez has run out of patience with Barcelona

After leaving Barcelona in August of 2015, Denis Suarez would rejoin the Spanish giants juts 11 months later from Villarreal for a fee of around £2.9 million.

Suarez had an impressive season for Villarreal making 48 appearances in all competitions, scoring five and assisting 12.

However, since returning to Barca, Suarez has struggled for game time.

His first season back did see him make 36 appearances in all competitions and the following season that number declined to 27.

This season, however, Suarez has made just the one appearance for Barca in the Copa Del Ray.

As a result, Spanish outlet AS are reporting that Suarez wants to leave Barca in order to find regular first team football.

Arsenal’s resurgence under Unai Emery

Suarez has identified Arsenal as his preferred destination.

Unai Emery is now Arsenal boss. Suarez is very familiar with Emery due to the centre mid spending time under him during a loan spell with Sevilla.

Also, given how well Emery is doing with Arsenal, it is easy to see why the Gunners may be an attractive destination for the Barcelona midfielder.

After taking over Arsene Wenger, Unai Emery would lose his first two games as Arsenal boss.

Since then, however, Arsenal have gone undefeated in all competitions.

The Gunners are currently 5th in the Premier League and are top of their Europa League group.

However, after Arsenal signed both Lucas Torreira and Mattéo Guendouzi over the summer window do Arsenal really need to sign another central midfielder?
