Athletic Bilbao think that this could finally be the summer they land Nacho Monreal with Arsenal reportedly willing to ‘sit down and talk’ about a move.
- Monreal’s birthplace makes him eligible to play for Athletic Bilbao
- Left-back has 25 Premier League appearances this season and 2 assists
- Nacho has previously said he would consider a move to Athletic Bilbao
- Arsenal are expected to undergo a major overhaul of playing staff this summer
Nacho Monreal, who has been stellar for Arsenal in the left-back position, has seen his star fade this season with a number of poor performances. While he’s not alone in claiming that accolade, he could be one to pay a heavy price.
AS in Spain report that Arsenal are ready to sit down with the Spanish side after chasing Nacho for a few years.
As a club that only fields players from the Basque region, Monreal is, naturally, a big target.
Arsene Wenger is expected to really shake things up on the playing front this summer after he signs a new deal to stay at the club for another two years. Whether he actually does or not, of course, is another matter entirely.
