Arsenal have finally wrapped up a deal to bring Denis Suarez to the Emirates Stadium.
Barca boss Ernesto Valverde effectively confirmed Suarez’s move earlier on Tuesday, and now Unai Emery has discussed what he might bring to Arsenal.
Suarez will arrive on an initial loan after Barca agreed to let the 25-year-old leave without a compulsory purchase option, with the Spaniard agreeing to extend his contract before leaving to preserve his value.
Speaking after the 2-1 win against the Cardiff on Tuesday nightt, Arsenal’s head coach admitted that Suarez will bring a much needed quality to his squad, once he arrives.
‘Generally speaking, we need wingers,’ said Emery after his side’s 2-1 win against Cardiff.
‘And if you have a player like Denis, I know him because he played for me at Sevilla. His quality is this.’
On how he will adapt to the Premier League, he continued: ‘I don’t know now. If he can come, it’s a challenge for him and it’s also to help us.
‘There’s no change in my idea, I think the same. If some players can come here to help us, they will come. ‘The latest news? I don’t know. Today all my focus has been on this match. I’ve not spoken with anyone at the club who is working on that.
‘Maybe tonight or tomorrow, I will speak about the latest news. My idea is the same: if we can sign one player to help us, it’s good for us.’
