Arsenal legend Alan Smith has sounded a note of warning to new signing Denis Suarez as he prepares to make his debut for the club in the Premier League clash with Manchester City on Sunday evening.
Denis Suarez was a Barcelona player until Thursday when he joined Arsenal on a short-term loan deal until the end of the season with the option to sign permanently in the summer.
Former Gunners striker Alan Smith talked about Denis Suarez in an interview on renowned media portal Sky Sports.
According to the footballer turned pundit, Denis Suarez will have to impress Arsenal manager Unai Emery to be a regular fixture in the starting XI.
Denis Suarez is no stranger to the methods of Spanish tactician Unai Emery after playing under his compatriot at Sevilla.
The ex-Manchester City player was an important member of the squad that won the Europa League title at the Spanish La Liga club during the 2014/15 season.
Denis Suarez was keen to reunite with Unai Emery at Arsenal despite offers to stay in Spain from top flight sides like Real Betis and former club Sevilla.
Respected Spanish journalist Guillem Balague revealed that the North Londoners paid €2.3m for his loan deal.
