Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright believes new loan signing Denis Suarez will prove to be a shrewd business done by the Gunners under the guidance of Unai Emery.
The Barcelona is backed to shoulder the responsibility of creating chances for the team, with their playmaker Mesut Ozil sidelined for most games.
Arsenal were never in contention to spend big during the recently concluded January transfer window, as Emery declared it that the club don’t have much money to splash, and only loan deals were possible.
They did manage to get one player over the line on loan, and he is one who has previously played under the manager. The Gunners will have the opportunity to buy him in the summer window.
Speaking on his Youtube channel, Ian Wright talked about the Suarez move: “What I like about Suarez is he’s a capable and very good player. Unai knows him very well from their time at Sevilla and they won the Europa League together which is a good thing.
“I know he’s not played a lot for Barcelona, but he’s a player that the manager wants. When a manager wants you, that kind of gives you a lot of confidence.
“It’s what he wants, so you’re hoping that him playing in midfield, and he can play on the wing, diminutive, good skills, you’re hoping that he can come and make a difference in respect of creativity for us.
“Because that’s what we need. Because at the moment you feel if you can keep [Alexandre] Lacazette or [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang quiet, then I’m not sure where our goals are coming from.”
Denis Suarez might make his Arsenal debut when they meet Manchester City at the Etihad tomorrow evening.
