Arsenal Boss Unai Emery Confirms Contract Talks With Nacho Monreal Over New Deal Amid Barcelona Rumours

Unai Emery has confirmed that Arsenal are in talks to extend the contract of star left-back Nacho Monreal.

The Spanish international has just one year left on his current Gunners deal, with Barcelona reportedly monitoring his situation in North London.

But speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s clash against Newcastle, Emery revealed he is desperate for the club to tie the 32-year-old down.

The ex-Paris Saint-Germain boss said: “First, I knew Nanco Monreal in Spain when he was playing for Malaga. I knew him.

“After 2 months now, I can say I am happy with him. He is 32 years old, physically the performance with us, Nacho is playing with a very good level.

“The reason for that, for me, we need to find a new contract with him to stay together with the Arsenal team.”

Monreal – who has netted once for Arsenal this season – recently revealed he is very happy at the Emirates.

He said: “At the moment we are talking with the club.

“I’ve always said I am really happy, I feel very happy playing for Arsenal. I came six years ago. I have a good relationship with them.

“We are in contact in any moment so don’t worry about that. I am happy here. That is the most important thing.”
