It has officially been confirmed that Arsenal academy graduate Emile Smith-Rowe has joined Bundesliga side RB Leipzig for the remainder of the season.
Although Barcelona had, yesterday, accidentally leaked Denis Suárez’s departure from the club on their official website, the Spaniard’s loan move to Arsenal has finally been made official.
Arsenal have confirmed the loan signing of Spanish midfielder Denis Suárez from Barcelona. The 25-year-old signed a one-year extension with the Spanish club in order to force through the move and it has been reported that the Gunners will have an option to sign the midfielder in the summer for a fee believed to be around €25-30 million (£21.7-£26m).
Originally, it had been reported that Barcelona were unwilling to agree to Arsenal’s demands as they wanted either a mandatory future fee in the agreement or for Suárez to agree to an extension to maintain his market value.
