Arsenal are trying to seal a loan deal for Barcelona's Denis Suarez, who played as a winger for Emery during their time together at Sevilla.

Arsenal have already been tipped to pursue the services of Denis Suarez from Barcelona but they are experiencing a similar predicament with the Spanish club wanting a straight-cash deal for the Spaniard.

The Gunners signed Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi in the summer at a cost of over £70million - but Emery conceded the winter window will be much more frugal from Arsenal.

Arsenal's transfer strategy in recent seasons has seen players run down their contract and leave for free, the latest being midfielder Aaron Ramsey who is set to join Juventus in the close season after failing to agree a new deal. "Only loan players. I don't know his [Suarez] situation now".

Arsenal travel to West Ham on Saturday before hosting Chelsea, the Blues occupying fourth place in the table, in a Premier League London derby next weekend.

"His future belongs to him, his family and agent".
