Arsenal left-back Nacho Monreal is closing in on a move away from the club, with Real Sociedad expected to confirm the signing of the Spaniard in the near future.
Monreal has entered the final year of his contract and, with new signing Kieran Tierney set to become Arsenal’s first-choice option upon his return from injury, doubts have emerged over Monreal’s future at the Emirates Stadium.
Talks between Arsenal and Real Sociedad have progressed recently, and Marca state that the La Liga side are close to confirming the signing of Monreal on a two-year deal, with the option for a third season.
La Real have been desperately looking to add some more experience in defence, and manager Imanol Alguacil is believed to have quickly decided that Monreal was his preferred target.
Should Monreal leave Arsenal this summer, it would bring an end to his six-year association with the Gunners. During that time, he has made 251 appearances in all competitions, even managing to rack up ten goals and 20 assists for good measure.
