Arsenal should have promoted promising teenager instead of signing Denis Suarez

Bukayo Saka is highly-rated at the Emirates Stadium and has played first-team football in the Europa League this season.

Arsenal are firmly in the mix to secure a return to the Champions League following a mini-sabbatical away from the competition. The Gunners are currently fourth in the Premier League with five games remaining.

Unai Emery has done a pretty impressive job since replacing Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium. The Spanish boss has got his side playing some pretty decent football, with optimism high for the future.

The January transfer window wasn’t a particularly fruitful period for the Gunners. Emery added Spanish winger Denis Suarez on loan from Barcelona and it quite simply hasn’t worked out.

The 25-year-old is yet to start a game for Arsenal and hasn’t contributed in the way of a goal or assist yet either. Quite simply, Emery will be glad to consign the signing of Suarez to the history books.


The Arsenal boss should have perhaps dipped into his youth academy instead. Bukayo Saka, in particular, is a winger with a bright future.

A 17-year-old, Saka boasts all the tricks and flicks and is extremely quick. The youngster has featured twice in the Gunners’ Europa League campaign, so Emery knows all about the player.

His form for the academy teams this season has reaped 11 goals and nine assists, so he can clearly play

Given Suarez’s catastrophic loan spell, Emery would have been far wiser to unleash Saka in some of the league games instead. The experience would have proved invaluable for his development, whilst it would have saved the club some cash.
