Kevin-Prince Boateng is in line to make his Barcelona debut against Sevilla in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, with midfielder Denis Suarez the odd man out. 

Boateng completed a shock loan switch from Sassuolo on Tuesday, providing Ernesto Valverde with cover in attack following the departure of Munir El Haddadi to Sevilla. 

The 31-year-old was named in a 19-man squad for the trip to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, with Lionel Messi handed a rest. 

However, Barcelona have now confirmed that the ratification of Boateng’s transfer by Spain’s football authorities means Suarez has been cut form the matchday 18. 

Former Manchester City, Sevilla and Villarreal midfielder Suarez has been persistently linked with a move to Arsenal during this transfer window, seemingly as a replacement for the reportedly Juventus-bound Wales international Aaron Ramsey.
