Arsenal looking for Monreal replacement
Nacho Monreal joined Arsenal in January of 2013 from Malaga for a fee of around £9 million.
Since joining Arsenal Monreal has played over 200 games for Arsenal, scored 10 and assisted 16.
Monreal has also been doing well under new Arsenal boss Unai Emery.
The left-back has played 10 games in all competitions this season for Arsenal, in which he has scored one and assisted three.

However, Monreal is now 32 years of age and coming to the end of his career.
Monreal’s Arsenal contract also runs out in July of 2019.
Given his age, Arsenal are unlikely to want to offer the Spaniard a new deal this summer.
As a result, Monreal is likely to depart and Arsenal will, therefore, be in need of another left-back.
Moreno to leave Liverpool for free
According to The Mirror, the man Arsenal are targeting to replace Monreal is Liverpool left-back, Alberto Moreno.
Moreno joined Liverpool from Spanish side Sevilla in 2014 and has gone on to play 139 games for the Reds, scoring three and assisting 11.
However, since Andy Robertson signed for Liverpool from Hull, Moreno has found his game time extremely limited.
Robertson has been Liverpool’s main left-back for around a year now and has been in tremendous form.
Liverpool’s defence has also improved massively.
They have let in just five goals in the league this season, the joint best record along with Manchester City.
As a result, Moreno has made just three appearances in all competitions this season.
Moreno’s contract also runs out at the end of the season, meaning Arsenal could well get the Spaniard on a free.
