Arsenal manager Unai Emery earlier confirmed that the club would only be able to bring in players on loan this transfer window, as reported by Sky Sports.
Considering that, the Spaniard had identified Barcelona’s Denis Suarez, who he worked with during his time as Sevilla boss, as a realistic target, though the Daily Mail reports a deal to bring the 25-year-old to the Emirates has since collapsed.
According to the outlet, Arsenal’s failure to agree a permanent deal for Suarez at the end of his loan spell was the reason for the breakdown in talks, leaving Emery in an unfavourable position.
Emery looked keen on adding a ball carrier to his squad with Suarez being a very good fit, especially considering the finances the former Paris Saint-Germain manager is currently working with.
With Suarez having been left out of Barcelona’s squad for their Copa del Rey game against Sevilla tonight (FC Barcelona official Twitter account) , though, there could be hope yet for Emery in his pursuit of the Spain international.

This whole transfer window is a joke if you’re an Arsenal fan! Can’t even bring players in on a loan deal! Absolute shambles!

winning @ChelseaFC.. doesn't make us strong enough to compete with top flight clubs and finish in the top four.. losing our top player like @aaronramsey , Now no deal for a fantastic player like @DenisSuarez6 which is a perfect replacement and cheap
