Another pointless central midfielder at Arsenal, who would have guessed it? This time around, Arsene Wenger isn’t the reason for another wasted signing, yet the fans are still getting the same feeling with Denis Suarez, as the Spaniard is set to return to Barcelona from his loan in the summer without being signed permanently, as The Sun claim.

Arsenal fans, at the time of his signing, were excited to see what Denis Suarez could bring to the table. The Spaniard signed for the Gunners on-loan with a view to an £18 million permanent move in the summer should things go as smoothly as everyone was hoping. However, it couldn’t have been more the opposite, and after just six appearances from the bench, the Barca man looks set to return to Spain.
If the summer fee wasn’t such a high one, with £18 million amounting to a significant percentage of Unai Emery’s bite-sized summer budget, then this deal would probably go ahead. With that being said, funds are tight at The Emirates and Emery will be keen to bolster in areas of more urgent need, leading to any fans who may have wanted to take a chance on Suarez quickly changing their tune, and unless the 25-year-old can turn things around dramatically in his final couple of months then things won’t change.

The Gunners are all seemingly in agreement over the future of Denis Suarez, and will have no qualms with sending him back to Barcelona after his short time at the club has looked bleak.
