Denis Suarez will join Arsenal on loan from Barcelona.

Barcelona announced the news in a statement, but it was later removed on Wednesday evening by the La Liga club.

The statement revealed that Suarez, who has one cap for Spain, has also agreed a new contract with Barcelona to protect his market value should a permanent move to the Emirates not work out, with his new deal expiring in June 2021.

Suarez also posted a goodbye message to the Barcelona squad on social media on Thursday.

He will link up again with Arsenal boss Unai Emery, who he worked with during a loan spell at Sevilla during the 2014-15 season. Arsenal will be paying Suarez's wages during his loan spell.
