Denis Suárez is already in London and will undergo his Arsenal medical soon, according to RAC1. The Galician has already said his goodbyes, with Barcelona players Luis Suárez and Rafinha posting farewells on their social media accounts.

It’s been reported that Denis is moving on a loan until the end of the season, with an optional purchase clause the Gunners can choose to activate.

Denis extended his contract until 2021, meaning he could return this summer and have two years left on the deal. It seems Barça were wary of creating another “Munir case.” The young forward moved on loan and returned with only a year left in his deal. He then agreed to join Sevilla on a free transfer at the expiry of his contract, forcing Barcelona to sell him on the cheap this winter.

Barça had reportedly told Denis he could not leave on loan until he extended his contract.
