Denis Suarez, Shkodran Mustafi and Kaba Diawara: 16 of Arsenal's worst ever signings

Spaniard Suarez has ended his spell at the Emirates Stadium - after just 95 minutes of action

There's no shortage of terrible transfer signings in the bulging money-pot that is the Premier League.

Step forward the likes of Eric Djemba-Djemba (Manchester United), Iago Aspas (Liverpool) and Roberto Soldado (Tottenham Hotspur).

But Arsenal have also been heavily involved over the years in signing players who were swiftly acknowledged as being short of the desired standard, and offering nowhere near value for money.

And the club has managed to add another to its ranks this season, in Spaniard Denis Suarez.

The former Manchester City youngster arrived in loan from Barcelona in January having made only eight appearances this season, and just two in La Liga.

Unfortunately for him, and Arsenal, he didn't make many more - he played 67 minutes across four league matches and 95 in total before a groin injury curtailed his spell.

Now, this wouldn't have been so bad in days gone by when loan deals were more of an act of goodwill, but now they can involve huge fees - in this case a reported £2.5m to Barcelona, plus the player's substantial wages.

Suarez took to Twitter to voice his "anger" and say farewell...

Many fans took to social media to label him the club's "worst ever signing". We'll let you decide - take a look at the slideshow at the top.
