Arsenal fans on Twitter have been waiting eagerly for their first signing of the January transfer window, and it looks like it could very close, as Sport claim that Denis Suarez has agreed to join Arsenal after discussing the move with Unai Emery.

The Spaniard will be keen to move to a club that can offer him consistent first-team football as he’s been left to warm the bench at Barcelona. However, it could be tough for the 25-year-old to adjust to going from a bit-part player at Barcelona to becoming someone relied upon week in week out at Arsenal, especially considering the increased tempo from La Liga to the Premier League.
Whether or not this move will be a successful one is something that we’ll find out as time goes on, but it’s certainly one that the Gunners are excited about. Suarez has managed just 221 minutes of action in his six appearances at the Nou Camp this season, although he has scored twice in that time, so if he can get some game time under his belt at Arsenal and become a regular starter then there’s no reason why he can’t become a star in North London.

Great signing that is

Good, hope he can outshine Ramsey.

I'd be pleased with him. Not sure he'd fully replace @aaronramsey's work rate and those runs into the box, but he's technically very gifted.

Everyone disappointed but oh man this guy is something else. I know we need a center half but Ramsey is going and we need a player like this. Great signing

The Gunners will be buzzing if they can sign Suarez and will hope he’s not their final signing of the window if they can get him in the next few days.
