Denis Suarez has underlined his desire to go down as an Arsenal legend.

The Spanish midfielder moved to Arsenal on a loan deal from La Liga giants FC Barcelona in the January transfer window.

Suarez worked alongside Emery at Sevilla in the 2014-15 season and the playmaker was part of the manager’s team that won the Europa League crown.

The Arsenal boss has used Suarez sparingly since his move to Arsenal from FC Barcelona after handing the January signing a mere 38 minutes of Premier League football.

The FC Barcelona youth product has been limited to a further two substitute appearances in the Europa League.

However, Suarez appears to be enjoying life at the Emirates Stadium despite his slow start to his Arsenal career.

The Arsenal loan signing has already stated his desire to go down as an Arsenal legend in the future.

“My aim is to be a success here, perform well and feel important,” Suarez told Arsenal’s YouTube channel.

“I’d like to become an important player at the club. I joined Arsenal to get a lot of playing time, to be an important player and feel important.

“I’m determined to perform well and be a success at this great club.”

Suarez has netted eight goals in 71 games in all competitions during his three seasons in the FC Barcelona first team.

The Spain Under-21 international has gone on loan to Arsenal and Sevilla during his career, both under Emery’ management.

Suarez started his professional career at the north London outfit’s rivals Manchester City before he moved to FC Barcelona in 2013-14.

The Arsenal star made two appearances in the League Cup for the Citizens.
