“Tell me it’s fake”, “Finally” – These Arsenal fans react to potential Monreal departure

According to Noticias de Gipuzkoa, Real Sociedad are close to securing the services of Arsenal left-back Nacho Monreal.

The defender is apparently open to the move, which would mark his return to La Liga. The Spaniard last plied his trade in his home country for Malaga before joining the Gunners in 2013.

The 33-year-old has since gone on to establish himself as a consistent and reliable option for the north London club. The 22-cap Spain international has made 250 appearances for the Gunners, scoring ten goals and registering 20 assists. He has captained Arsenal on several occasions and has won three FA Cups in his time at the Emirates Stadium.

However, his time with Arsenal now looks close to an end. As one of the club’s most impressive defenders in recent years he will surely be missed. However, age is beginning to catch up with him and the Premier League outfit are running out of time to cash in on the full-back considering his current contract is set to expire at the end of the season. The summer signing of Kieran Tierney has also pushed him down the pecking order in Unai Emery’s squad. 

Following the emergence of the aforementioned report, plenty of Arsenal fans took to Twitter to react to the prospect of Monreal’s potentially imminent departure.
