Arsenal

Emery waiting on Suarez news

30th January 2019, 10:15 by Michael Holland

Unai Emery is still hoping to bring Barcelona winger Denis Suarez to Arsenal but admits there is work to be done.

The Gunners have been chasing the player for some time, but the clock is ticking with the transfer window set to close on Thursday and Emery is hoping for good news.

Emery could not give an update following Tuesday night's 2-1 win over Cardiff at the Emirates Stadium, but is clearly keeping his fingers crossed.

"There’s no change in my idea, I think the same. If some players can come here to help us, they will come," Emery said. "The latest news? I don’t know.

"Today all my focus has been on this match. I’ve not spoken with anyone at the club who is working on that. Maybe tonight or tomorrow, I will speak about the latest news.

"My idea is the same: if we can sign one player to help us, it’s good for us.

When quizzed further about what Suarez would bring to the team, Emery added: "Generally speaking, we need wingers and if you have a player like Denis, I know him because he played for me at Sevilla. His quality is this."
