Denis Suarez has said he wants to leave Barcelona in search of regular playing time in the summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old is coming off the back of a miserable season where he did not manage a single start for Barcelona or even for Arsenal after joining in January for a loan spell.

The midfielder has previously seemed determined to force his way into the reckoning at the Camp Nou but has now made it clear he’s looking for a move.

“What I want is to leave Barca and play,” he said.

”My goal is to stay in the Spanish league. I have been in Barcelona for two months recovering from the injury and nobody from Barca has told me anything.

”Marcelino is the best coach I’ve ever had. I speak regularly with him. It’s not true that I rejected Valencia. Valencia have never shown any interest in signing me as they are doing now.”

Denis signed a new deal with Barcelona that runs until 2021 before joining Arsenal and reportedly has a release clause of €50m.

He is one of several players Barcelona are expected to move on this summer with the club looking to bring in players such as Matthijs de Ligt and Antoine Griezmann.
