Not so long ago, Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal always used to get criticism from the supporters for his inconsistency.
However, the Spanish international was a completely rejuvenated figure and quite possibly their best defender last season.
With Arsenal looking to challenge for the Premier League title next season, they must keep the best players but it looks highly likely that Monreal is going to leave the club this summer to join Athletic Bilbao.
According to Spanish source AS, talks are being held between Arsenal and Bilbao to seal deal for Monreal’s transfer from the Emirates.
As per the provided link, the former Malaga full back will sign a three year deal with the La Liga side who will pay the North London club 10 million Euros to finally secure his services. To repalce the Spaniard, the Gunners are linked with Napoli and Algerian star Faouzi Ghoulam who will cost around 10 million pounds.
