The Spanish midfielder, 25, signed on loan from Barcelona in January, but has made little impact at the Emirates, making six substitute appearances across all competitions and playing just 95 minutes.

He last featured for Unai Emery’s side as an 80th minute substitute in the 2-0 win against Manchester United on March 10.

In a statement on Twitter, Suarez wrote: “I will not be able to play again this season.

“Some issues with my groin have made things tough since the game against BATE in the Europa League in February and now they have forced me to stop training altogether.

“I am sorry for all the effort and sacrifice made to come to Arsenal hasn’t come to fruition as hoped and you can’t even imagine how angry I am about it, but health comes first.”

Arsenal have an option to purchase Suarez in the summer, but after his failed loan spell, it appears unlikely that this will be taken up.
