Denis Suarez will join Arsenal on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season with the option to buy as part of the agreement.
Suarez, who has one cap for Spain, has also agreed a new contract with Barcelona in order to protect his market value should a permanent move to the Emirates not work out, with his new deal expiring in June 2021.
He will link up again with Arsenal boss Unai Emery, who he worked with during a loan spell at Sevilla during the 2014-15 season. Arsenal will be paying Suarez’s wages during his loan spell.
Suarez played 71 games in three seasons with the first team at Barcelona, scoring eight goals and has won five trophies: La Liga, two Copas del Rey and two Spanish Super Cups.
