ARSENAL boss Unai Emery has personally secured an agreement with Denis Suarez, it has been claimed.

Suarez is eager to quit Barcelona because of a lack of minutes on the pitch.
He has been limited to seven appearances in all competitions this term.
Suarez enjoyed a season-long loan deal at Sevilla under Emery’s management in the 2014/15 campaign.
According to the Daily Mail, Emery and Suarez are so eager to be reunited that an agreement has been struck between the pair.
Arsenal and Barcelona could put an end to the impasse in negotiations by agreeing a loan deal with an obligatory permanent option at the end of the season.
Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has indicated he is in no rush to see Suarez leave.
