Denis Suarez held back from convincing Arsenal about stay

Denis Suarez is being held back from convincing Arsenal about a permanent deal due to a groin injury.

The Daily Mail says Suarez's future at Arsenal has been placed under further jeopardy after it emerged that he is now being dogged by a persistent groin injury.

Suarez, 25, signed for Arsenal on loan from Barcelona in January but the Spaniard has only made six substitute appearances since arriving at the club. His last showing was in the 2-0 victory over Manchester United on March 10.

Suarez has been hampered by pain during training sessions over recent weeks and Arsenal's physiotherapists are now suggesting he reduces his role in training in the coming days to see whether the inflammation can be managed better.

He is likely to hold talks with manager Unai Emery in the coming 24 hours to lessen his role in training in a bid to ease the problem.
