Gunners Bag Monreal

Arsenal have agreed terms with Spanish defender Nacho Monreal late on Transfer Deadline Day, the club has revealed.

The Gunners will complete the deal for the player on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee from Malaga.

A statement on the club's official website read, "Arsenal Football Club is delighted to announce that Spanish international defender Nacho Monreal has agreed to join the Gunners on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee.

"Monreal (26), who will join Arsenal from Spanish La Liga side Malaga, is predominantly a left full-back and has represented his country Spain at youth level, Under-21s and has made nine appearances for the national team."

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was delighted with the move, saying that they had been watching the player for some time.

"We are delighted that Nacho Monreal has agreed to join us. We have been monitoring him for some time now and are really pleased that we’ve been able to agree this move today," said the Frenchman.

"Monreal is a strong left-sided defender with good experience at both club and international level. He is a technically gifted player, a good crosser in the final third and strong in the air.

"Monreal will add quality to our squad and of course, to our defensive unit. We all look forward to him playing for us."
