Arsenal icon Arsene Wenger was right about Denis Suarez a YEAR before he left Barcelona | Football | Sport

Arsenal saw Wenger leave the club at the end of last season, with Unai Emery succeeding him in the hottest over at the Emirates Stadium.

The Spaniard has enjoyed a solid, if unspectacular, first season at the club. They have missed out on the top four but managed to make the Europa League final.

When it comes to transfers, however, the jury is still out on the Arsenal legend.

His signing of Suarez on loan from Barcelona in January has spectacularly misfired, with the player struggling for form.

The Spain international is yet to start a SINGLE game for the club with one match of the season remaining.

And Football London claim Wenger was offered the chance to sign the 25-year-old back in January 2017.

Brighton and Hove Albion and Southampton both had the Barcelona star on their radar at the time.

But Wenger said no.

The Arsenal legend doubted the player’s ability to make an impact in the Premier League, particularly on a short term basis.

And he has been proven right.

Emery has failed to coax the best from Suarez and the player looks set to leave Arsenal to go back to Barcelona this summer.

Suarez will miss Arsenal’s Europa League clash with Chelsea at the end of the month.

And the player has already said his goodbyes, penning a heartfelt letter to Gunners fans.

“I want you all to know that I will not be able to play again this season,” he said on Twitter.

“Some issues with my groin have made things tough since the game against BATE Boris [sic] in the Europa League in February and now they have forced me to stop training altogether.

“After various medical consultations, the conclusion has been reached that I cannot keep on pushing it and I have started a period of treatment that cannot be done alongside competitive football.”
