Unai Emery admitted this week that his side would only be able to loan the player for six months whilst at the Camp Nou they'd prefer a permanent transfer.

'You have to balance the players because they play a lot of matches in the next month, with the Europa League and the FA Cup.

Five players were signed last summer - Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi - but all came in for a total outlay of less than £75million.

"I say to him every day, is that we need his performance for us", Emery said.

While the club work on loan targets, Emery said he would be content to work with the players he has over the remainder of the season.

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.

It is added that the Gunners are leading the race for his signature with manager Emery giving the green light for the club to recruit the former Monaco man.

Arsenal have been linked to Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, who Emery managed while at Sevilla, but the Arsenal boss has distanced himself from a move.

"I know this player and he's a very good player", Emery went on.

'It's not easy for him to play three matches in one week, and we pushed him and he was playing three matches during the week, but not ninety minutes each match, ' said Emery. "My last conversation with him is very important", Emery said.

"We can not sign permanently".

"If we can find one player who can help us like we need, with the quality and a different player for getting in our squad, we are going to do it".
