Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that the club are looking to sign players in the January transfer window, but only on loan.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez as they look to add more depth to their squad.

Suarez has struggled for regular playing time at Barcelona this season and is expected to move in the ongoing transfer window.

Arsenal, however, are looking for a loan deal for the player and Emery has revealed that the Gunners cannot afford to pay for any transfer fees and are looking for a loan deal.

“We can’t sign with payment, we can only loan players in this window”, Emery told a press conference ahead of the game against West Ham United.

“I don’t know his [Suarez] situation now. We can only sign players later on.

“I know the club is working on possibilities of which players can help us with big performances like we need now.”

Arsenal are three points behind Chelsea in the Premier League table and are hoping to push the teams above them in the race for the Champions League spots.

The Gunners have won their last two games in all competitions, and will look to make it three wins in as many games when they travel to the London Stadium to take on West Ham on Saturday.
