Nacho Monreal was Arsenal’s captain for the home match against Burnley, and has started all the games at left back this season.
However, despite these feat, his future at the club had always looked in doubt since the start of the summer window.
Emery in his post match interview after the Anfield defeat, addressed the speculation over Nacho Monreal’s future, who according to Marca, has agreed terms on a move to Real Sociedad. The Spaniard was effusive in his praise for his fellow countryman, and admitted that talks are ongoing over his future.
“He made a very big match and he’s a very big professional for us. This is one issue we need to speak in the next few days, but we are going to speak about all the situations and the possibilities.”
“Some players can leave but we cannot sign another and it depends a little over the next days how we can decide about some circumstances with some players. With Nacho one possibility is open and we are going to speak about that.”
Monreal has been at Arsenal since 2013, after joining from Malaga for £8.5m. The Spaniard has made 251 appearances for the Gunners, the most he’s made for any club he’s played for in his 14-year career.
