It has been understood that Denis Suarez will sign a one-year contract extension at Barcelona till 2021, which will then trigger his loan move to Arsenal.
Arsenal, however, will have an option to buy the midfielder for a transfer fee in the region of 20-25m euros at the beginning of the new season.
Denis Suarez previously played under Unai Emery during his time at Sevilla, where he played 47 games across all competitions as the Spanish side lifted the Europa League trophy that season.
The arrival of the Barca midfielder comes as a huge boost for Arsenal as they have had a shaky few weeks.
