Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde had made a crucial last minute and brutal change removing Denis Suarez from his squad that played against Getafe yesterday.
Since the opening of the January transfer window, Arsenal have been linked with the Catalonia star who has been reduced in game time at the Camp Nou.
Denis Suarez, who celebrated his birthday yesterday, was left out of team that played against Getafe after despite travelling with the squad.
His omission from the squad could mean Suarez is ready to leave the club this January with Arsenal also being heavy linked.
Before his return to Barcelona the 24-year-old midfielder formerly worked under Unai Emery at Sevilla back in 2014, and will be expected to join the Gunners as a potential replacement to Aaron Ramsey who still have a chance to leave the club this winter or as a free agent in the summer.
The Spaniard travelled with Ernesto Valverde’s squad yesterday with the hope of featuring in the match only to not be named in the substitute as the club want to extend their lead further in the La Liga.
With that being shown in the media, Arsenal fans somehow took the hint as sign that Suarez is coming to the Emirates Stadium and a deal was close.
Here are some of the Arsenal fans tweets:
