Luis Suarez message for Denis Suarez: Denis Suarez is very close to signing for Arsenal after a deal has been agreed.
Denis Suarez had been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal throughout the January transfer window.
Denis Suarez has previously played for Unai Emery during his time at Spain and the Arsenal head coach is excited to work with the player again.
In his press conferences earlier this month, Emery has talked about Suarez on multiple occasions, even talking about his preferred position for the midfielder.
And now, Luis Suarez has seemingly confirmed Suarez’s departure with an eight-word message for the player on his social media profile.
Luis Suarez message for Denis Suarez:
Denis Suarez joined Barcelona in 2016 but failed to become a regular feature in Barcelona’s starting XI.
After making 26 La Liga appearances in his first season at the club, his career at Barcelona went downhill as Suarez has since played in only 20 league games across the two seasons.

Unai Emery spoke about Denis Suarez last night before the game against Cardiff City. His comments confirmed that the midfielder is on his way to Arsenal.
“We need wingers. if you have a player like Denis, I know him because he played for me at Sevilla. His quality is this,” Emery said.
When asked if Suarez will adapt to the physicality in the Premier League, Emery said, “I don’t know now. It’s a challenge for him, and also [it is a challenge for him] to help us.”
While Arsenal are expected to confirm the arrival of Denis Suarez later today, it has been suggested that the side is also working relentlessly to secure a second signing in the transfer window.
Got a feeling that Suarez will be the only one coming in now. The Perisic deal seems like it’s come to a halt. Carrasco is a possibility but not much time left now. It very well could only be Denis Suarez.

After the deal for Ivan Perisic looks unlikely, Arsenal have shifted their focus on to Yannick Carrasco, who currently plays in the Chinese Super League.
