Denis Suarez

North London giants Arsenal have confirmed the shirt number for new signing Denis Suarez shortly after his transfer was revealed on deadline day of the just concluded winter transfer window.

The Gunners have signed Denis Suarez from Spanish La Liga club Barcelona on a short-term loan until the end of the season and he has been handed the jersey number 22 at the club.

His shirt number was revealed by the North London giants on Thursday evening.

Arsenal had earlier agreed on a €2.3m loan deal for the Spaniard with the option to buy for €25m in the summer.

The Gunners made a breakthrough in talks with Barcelona just before the end of the transfer window.

Denis Suarez signed a one-year contract extension at Barcelona until the end of the 2020/21 season before leaving the club for Arsenal.

The Gunners were keen on a loan transfer for other players like Ivan Perisic (Inter Milan), Christopher Nkunku (PSG) and Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco but Arsenal were unable to pull off any deal before the winter transfer window was shut on Thursday night.

Arsenal were partially handicapped in the quest to sign the above listed players due to the fact that club officials were only interested in a temporary move for the players.
