Denis Suarez has no future at Arsenal 0

Posted on March 19, 2019 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal’s Barcelona loanee Denis Suarez will return to the Catalan capital this summer after failing to hit the heights expected of him in north London. This will be a blow to Barcelona, who are keen to offload the midfielder.

Struggled to have an impact at Arsenal

Suarez only joined the Gunners on loan in January and was expected to thrive under boss Unai Emery, who he had previously with at Sevilla. The midfielder has shown potential in flashes at Sevilla and Villarreal.

Barcelona are counting on the loan deal which saw Denis Suarez trade Camp Nou for the Emirates in January to become permanent at the end of the season, as reported by Marca.

Apparently, the Catalan giants are measuring their options and have decided to pursue signings in the form of a striker and a left-back; one to relieve the amount of game-time for former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, once linked with Arsenal himself and the other to provide cover in a similar way for Jordi Alba.

Patrick Kluivert believes Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would be a good call to replace Luis Suarez at Barcelona, the former striker of the Catalan club revealed, speaking to Sport360.

Kluivert spent six years at Camp Nou, between 1998 and 2004, and during that time he scored 122 goals in 257 games. Suarez has already surpassed his tally and by a wide margin, despite the Uruguay international playing for Barcelona year and a half less so far, with 168 strikes in 227 appearances.

Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Denis Suarez from Barcelona for the rest of the season, with an option to buy in the summer. The Guardian (and several other sources too) claim Barcelona have confirmed it.

There have been several twists in this particular saga. As it always is the case with successfully completed transfers, the initial reports seemed somewhat unconvincing but the link grew gradually stronger. Eventually, it had been reported that an agreement was close last week, before it suddenly seemed it would go down the drain with Barcelona reluctant to accept sending the player on loan.

Arsenal have begun talks with Chinese club Dalian Yifang over the possiblity of signing Yannick Carrasco, according to multiple sources.

Apparently, the negotiations with Inter Milan over Ivan Perišić have broken down with the Serie A side reluctant to allow the winger to leave on loan this month and the Gunners unable to offer a different king of arrangement. With no time to lose, the club have now turned to the former Atletico Madrid man whom they see as a suitable alternative.

Spanish football expert journalist Guillem Balague claims the transfer of Denis Suarez from Barcelona to Arsenal will not be happening this month. The midfielder has apparently decided to stay at Camp Nou after the two clubs failed to agree on all aspects of the deal.

According to Balague, Barcelona demanded a clause to be inserted into the deal, one that would force Arsenal to make the deal permanent in the summer and pay a fee amounting to somewhere in between €20 million and €25 million. Arsenal refused the Catalans’ wish and the deal has seemingly gone down the drain, at least as far as this transfer window is concerned.

Suarez transfer this week? 0

Arsenal are hopeful of completing the signing of Denis Suarez from Barcelona before the week is over, according to the Mirror.

The Catalan club apparently wanted to get their incoming deals done for this window before turning the tap the other way and letting those who wish to leave do so. Having reinforced the back line with the acquisition of centre-backs Jeison Murillo on loan from Valencia for the rest of the season, and 19-year-old Jean-Clair Todibo from Toulouse who will move to Camp Nou in the summer on a free transfer, they have now secured the long-sought backup striker they wanted by signing Kevin Prince Boateng from Serie A side Sassuolo.

The transfer of Denis Suarez from Barcelona to Arsenal is one step closer after the two clubs held talks with a positive outcome, the Mirror have reported.

Manager Unai Emery is extremely keen on Suarez coming to the Emirates this month. However, the manager is still facing several difficult circumstances in which the deal needs to be completed.

Suarez wants Arsenal 0

According to the Mirror, Denis Suarez has informed Barcelona that he would like to move to Arsenal this month.

The attacking midfielder, well capable of performing well on either flank or through the middle, had reportedly been told by his current club back in December to start searching for a new club, as they had no place for him in their team. The report sparked interest in his services from clubs around Europe, and it was immediately clear he’d have no shortage of offers. Now it seems he has chosen Arsenal as his preferred destination, and he wants the switch to happen now, rather than in the summer.

Suarez would be a shrewd signing for Arsenal 0

As one of my colleagues wrote earlier, Arsenal are reportedly close to completing the £14million signing of Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez. The Spaniard has struggled for first-team minutes in the Catalan capital.

No shame in failing to make it at Barcelona

Barcelona are one of the biggest clubs to world football, both in profile and their success on the pitch. Along with Spanish rivals Real Madrid, they are a step ahead of the big clubs in other countries.

As such, they tend to sign whatever player want. A case in point was the Catalan giants signing Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool, despite the Reds resisting their overtures for a short while.
