Arsenal have completed the signing of Denis Suarez on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season, the club have confirmed.
LaLiga champions Barca announced the deal and Suarez’s contract extension until 2021 on Wednesday before deleting the statement from their website, but Arsenal removed any doubt surrounding the switch on deadline day.
The move sees the midfielder link up once again with Unai Emery, whom he was coached by when he spent the 2014-15 season on loan at Sevilla.
Arsenal will pay Suarez’s salary throughout his time at Emirates Stadium and the switch contains an option to buy, even though Barca have extended the 25-year-old’s deal by 12 months.
He is Arsenal new No. 22.
