Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal has agreed on a deal to return to the Spanish La Liga this summer.

The Premier League transfer window ended two weeks ago but Monreal can still leave Arsenal before the European transfer window ends on September 2.

According to Marca, Spanish top flight side Real Sociedad have agreed on a deal to sign him.

It was revealed that Real Sociedad have offered him a two-year deal with the option of a third year.

Nacho Monreal has one year left on his Arsenal contract at the moment.

The Gunners are keen to offload fringe players like Shkodran Mustafi and Mohamed ElNeny before the European transfer window shuts and Nacho Monreal could leave as well.

His playing time at Arsenal will almost certainly reduce with the summer signing of Scottish international left-back Kieran Tierney.

The Scottish defender was signed from Celtic FC of Scotland in a deal reported to be around £25m.

Kieran Tierney is injured at the moment but the new Arsenal defender is expected to return to action before the end of next month.

Nacho Monreal was in action for Arsenal as they lost to hosts Liverpool earlier on Saturday.

Monreal and Arsenal suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Liverpool.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been told to drop four players for the Premier League clash at Liverpool.

Unai Emery was advised by Manchester United legend Gary Neville while he was doing his media work on Sky Sports.

According to him, Unai Emery needs to take the young players out of his starting XI for the Liverpool game.

Young players like Matteo Guendouzi, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson have featured heavily for the Gunners in their first two games of the new Premier League campaign.

According to ex-Manchester United right-back Gary Neville, Liverpool have a formidable home record spanning the last 12-18 months and what to expect from them for the Arsenal game but the same can’t be said about the Gunners.

Gary Neville said there’s still an air of unpredictability with the Arsenal squad.

He expects Granit Xhaka to come into the Arsenal XI for the Liverpool game.

The Swiss international missed the last game because of a back injury as Arsenal defeated Burnley 2-1 to make it two wins from two Premier League matches.

The star of the show was summer signing Dani Ceballos after the Spanish international provided two assists either side of the halftime interval to give the Gunners victory over Burnley.

Aubameyang

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has narrated how he impacted the career of Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang when they were at German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund together.

Klopp talked about the Arsenal striker during his last press conference ahead of the Premier League meeting between Liverpool and the Gunners.

Liverpool host Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening with the hope of making it three wins out of the first three Premier League games of this season.

Arsenal also have the opportunity to achieve the same target having won their first two league games.

Jurgen Klopp revealed how he transformed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from a winger to a lethal striker.

The Liverpool manager signed Aubameyang for Borussia Dortmund from French top flight club Saint Etienne in the summer of 2013 and they were together at the Signa Iduna Park for two years before Klopp left in the summer of 2015.

Jurgen Klopp became the Liverpool manager in October 2015 and he has been able to build a title-winning squad on Merseyside.

For Aubameyang, the Gabonese international star was signed by Arsenal in January 2018 for a then club-record fee of £56m.

The transfer record has since been broken by fellow African player Nicholas Pepe whom the Gunners signed for £72m this summer.

The Liverpool manager spoke extensively about the game in his pre-match presser on Friday as he identified new signing Nicholas Pepe and stand-in captain Granit Xhaka as key players for Arsenal.

Arsenal took the lead in the corresponding fixture last season through Ainsley Maitland-Niles before they succumbed to a 5-1 defeat against the Reds.
