The 23-year-old is on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season and the Gunners have an option to secure his services on a full-time basis.

Suarez is yet to start since arriving on the final day of the January transfer window.
Arsenal ‘Invincible' Robert Pires believes Suarez has all the attributes to be a monster hit.
“Arsenal are yet to see Suarez's full potential and they should look to make the deal permanent as soon as possible,” Pires said.
“He fits the mould of the type of player that Arsenal look for with our style of football.”
“If Arsenal can sign him permanently, I think he can help Arsenal and Emery start to really secure continuous top-four positions again in the Premier League.
“He's new to the Premier League and to the country so he'll need time to settle in, but if he's given the time then he'll be an excellent signing for Arsenal.”
