Arsenal Transfer News Barcelona chief makes promise to Denis Suarez

This month, however, despite being linked with a number of high-profile targets, the club will only be allowed to sign players on a temporary basis.

Suarez, who is valued at £20m by his club, is said to be keen on making the move to the Emirates Stadium, and Arsenal could offer Ramsey to Barcelona in exchange for the Spaniard.

Emery is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News: "We can not sign anyone permanently".

"I don't know his situation now. But we can only sign players on loan", goal.com quoted Emery, as saying. "I know the club is working on possibilities of which players can help us with big performances like we need now", he said.

"I know this player and he's a very good player".

Arsenal signed Bernd Leno, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi in the summer for in excess of £70million, but Emery said the winter window will be much quieter.

Arsenal are likely to need another option in the middle soon, with Aaron Ramsey set to quit for Juventus in the summer.

"His future is for him, his family and his agent".

"But I am happy with every player today, it is really some injuries that didn't help us in the last matches because we struggled with different injuries with the players".

The key issue is that Arsenal don't have funds available to buy players in January and Emery confirmed this during his press conference yesterday ahead of Saturday's trip to West Ham.

"I respect his decision a lot".
