Press conference

Unai Emery responds to Denis Suarez reports

We’ve been linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez, and Unai Emery was asked about the 25-year-old when he faced the media on Tuesday night.

Here’s what our head coach said:

on the latest on Suarez…
There’s no change in my idea, I think the same. If some players can come here to help us, they will come. The latest news? I don’t know. Today all my focus has been on this match. I’ve not spoken with anyone at the club who is working on that. Maybe tonight or tomorrow, I will speak about the latest news. My idea is the same: if we can sign one player to help us, it’s good for us.

on what Suarez will bring to the team…
Generally speaking, we need wingers and if you have a player like Denis, I know him because he played for me at Sevilla. His quality is this.

on whether Suarez can handle the Premier League’s physicality…
I don’t know now. If he can come, it’s a challenge for him and it’s also to help us.
