Barcelona have agreed to let Denis Suarez join Arsenal but on the condition that the deal is permanent, that the claim of Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.
Reports have filtered in since the open of the transfer window that Arsenal have made the signing of Suarez a priority, albeit in a loan deal.
The Spanish midfielder has been restricted to only two substitute appearances in the league for Barcelona this season, and he wants out of the club.
Knowing well the dangers of keeping an unhappy player, Ernesto Valverde will not stand in the way of the player to complete a transfer. However, he will only sanction a move for the player on a permanent basis and not a loan spell.
Balague claims Barcelona would add a buy back clause in his deal and that’s the only way they would allow him leave on a loan spell.
“Denis Suarez wants Arsenal or to stay at Barcelona,” he told the GB transfer podcast.
“There’s a problem with that, Barcelona want to get money for him and Arsenal are only willing to get him on loan because they’ve got other priorities, he’s not the only name on the list for them.
“They want a midfielder and they want centre-backs, Denis Suarez is not a total priority.”
Emery is desperate in need of a winger, Suarez would perfectly fit into his plan for Arsenal.
