Huge question marks surround Denis Suarez’s future at Arsenal after it emerged he has been dogged by a persistent groin problem.
The 25-year-old Barcelona loanee has made just six substitute appearances for the Gunners, totalling just 95 minutes and he has really struggled to settle in the Premier League since arriving in January.
Now though the Daily Mail explain that a niggling groin problem has been hindering the midfielder and his chances of staying with the club next season look slim.
Suarez is struggling so much with the injury that Arsenal’s medical team are now suggesting he reduces his role in training after feeling pain in recent sessions.
The report says: “Suarez is likely to hold talks with manager Unai Emery in the coming 24 hours to lessen his role in training in a bid to ease the problem.”
The paper has some pretty detailed information on the injury, so much so you wonder whether it has come straight from Suarez or his agent in a bid to defend his poor spell in London. Apparently the pain Suarez is feeling is along the pubic bone and is at its worst when “twisting and turning quickly”.
Suarez is said to be “desperate to be fully fit in order to break into the Arsenal team” with the games running out.
The Gunners agreed to take on Suarez’s full Barcelona salary – believed to be around £60,000 a week – to get the deal over the line in January.
