Arsenal midfielder Denis Suarez could be sent back to Barcelona, according to the latest reports in the UK.
The Spaniard has yet to make his first start for the Gunners following his loan switch in January.
Suarez’s move to the Emirates can be made permanent for €20m (£17m) in the summer, but it is said that Arsenal feel that the money could be better spent elsewhere:
Fans on Twitter don’t know what to make of the story:
I’ll be very sad if this happens. He has some good potential and can run at defenses. Premature to let him go without giving him a chance to prove himself.

Unai is not giving him a chance, let him go back, but staying in Arsenal will destroy his football career.

He ain’t fit for arsenal team

I mean this loan was very pointless. Why hasn’t he started a game yet? He’ll never be able to show him self, playing 10-15 minutes as a sub.

There really was no point buying him😂

Sad that he didn’t get enough opportunities to prove his calibre.

Give him time

Haven’t given him any sort of chance really have they. A few minutes here and there at the end of a game is hard enough for an established player let alone one who seems to have been hardly accepted or even introduced into the core team.

Smart, he’s literally done nothing and no way could he step up into Rambos shoes 👎🏽

Suarez has made six substitute appearances since his arrival from Barca, and manager Unai Emery has repeatedly commented that the 25-year-old is simply building up his fitness.
However, there are said to be concerns over the midfielder’s suitability for the physicality of the Premier League.
Combined with claims that Arsenal’s transfer budget for the summer is limited, it could lead to the Gunners cutting short Suarez’s time at the club in a bid to secure other targets.
