Emery tells Arsenal to sign this PSG star as perfect replacement for Denis Suarez

Arsenal will make a renewed effort to sign Christopher Nkunku in the January transfer window and are ready to dispense with Denis Suarez.

The Spaniard was signed on loan from Barcelona in January but has struggled to force his way into Emery’s side.

Suarez’s arrival coincided with Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s return to form and fitness and has been restricted to just six substitute appearances.

Arsenal have the option to sign the 25-year-old on a permanent basis when the transfer window reopens at the end of the season but are unlikely to do so at a cost of £18million.

The Sun claims Arsenal only turned their attentions to Suarez after failing to agree a deal with PSG for Nkunku in January but maintain a strong interest in the versatile winger.

Nkunku has made only five appearances since the start of February and, despite scoring twice in his four most recent appearances, was not used in the high-profile Champions League last 16 tie against Manchester United and Ligue 1 win over Marseille.

The 21-year-old, by contrast, played 43 times under Emery during the former Sevilla manager’s two seasons at Parc des Princes and scored seven goals.

PSG are said to value the player, whose contract expires in just over a year’s time, at around £18 million.
