Denis Suarez to Arsenal: The club’s top target has spoken about his future at Barcelona.
Arsenal are currently 5th in the Premier League. The Gunners have had an impressive season so far, as Unai Emery’s side is on a 21-game unbeaten run across all competitions.
However, Arsenal are still 10 points behind, albeit with a game in hand behind league leaders Manchester City. The side will be up against the relegation-threatened Southampton in the Premier League later tonight.
Even when Arsenal have been in good form at the moment, Unai Emery is keen on bringing in more players in the January transfer window.
Barcelona’s Denis Suarez has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal, with the Gunners reportedly preparing a 14 million pounds bid to bring the Barca midfielder to the Emirates Stadium. Suarez has now spoken about his future at the Catalan club.
Denis Suarez to Arsenal:
The 24-year old has found himself out of favour with Barcelona’s manager Ernesto Valverde, as the player has only made five appearances for the club this season.
Moreover, Denis Suarez has played for only 8 minutes in the La Liga, with four of the five games in the Champions League and the Copa del Rey.

“I work to play and I’m not having minutes, if I do not play … we’ll see,” Suarez said, as reported by Sun.
“I want to play, today I was able to enjoy and I felt good, comfortable, I want to play as much as possible.”
