Athletic Bilbao are still interested in getting their grubby little paws on Nacho Monreal according to reports which emerged this week.
The Spanish side, who only use Basque players, have something of a hard-on for the Arsenal man, however it seems as if they’re going to be left to find satisfaction elsewhere as Nacho won’t be going anywhere.
At least not this summer.
Speaking to the media on Friday ahead of the final league game of the season, Arsene Wenger confirmed that no players wanted to leave. With Nacho nailing down the starting left-back spot in the side, there is absolutely no need for him to go elsewhere to play his football.
That doesn’t mean he won’t head back that way eventually, he is, after all 29 and Kieran Gibbs will be kicking at his heels to get his spot back but, for now, Bilbao can look all they want – but there will be no touching.
