Arsenal are obviously in desperate need of a striker, potentially even two, this summer, and their search for players of the right pedigree goes a long way back. There’s hardly any need to stress – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is no longer at the club, and Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both set to follow the Gabonese through the exit door as free agents at the end of next month.

Arsenal tried to sign a striker in January, that much is clear having been reported far and wide by every journalist in the game. It’s also clear that they failed in that plan, and Fabrizio Romano has explained that the most important aspect of their intention was for the potential target to be considered a top player.

Arsenal have been credited with strong interest in signing Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina this month, but it seems the Gunners are now set to fail in their pursuit, with Juventus close to reaching an agreement to acquire his services.

Some reports in Italy even went as far as to claim that Arsenal had a bid of €80 million accepted by Fiorentina, but they also said Vlahovic himself was not keen to leave his current side halfway through the season when they’re fighting to finish in the top six.

Nacho Monreal decided to return to Spain after six and a half years in England, signing a two-year contract with Real Sociedad in August 2019. The Spaniard has been open about wanting to play in LaLiga Santander again, but after coming to the club in May 2018 Unai Emery made it clear that he didn’t want to lose his defender. This only postponed Monreal’s decision to return to his home country and his family. He reveals that once his mind was made up he started following Real and wanted them to win.

After six years at Arsenal Football Club, Nacho Monreal has left the Emirates in favour of a switch to Spanish club Real Sociedad. It marks the first time that he will be returning to Spanish football since he left for Arsenal, with his prior location being Malaga.

Thanks, Nacho

The 33 year old has actually featured in all three of Arsenal’s Premier League games so far this season and even served as captain during the game against Burnley. Alas, with his replacement Kieran Tierney being set to return to full fitness shortly, it’s quite clear to see that Monreal wasn’t interested in the idea of playing second fiddle. In many ways you can understand his logic, but in others, it’s a shame to see a player that was fairly consistent move on to pastures new.

Reiterating what other managers have said before about the Premier League transfer window finishing two weeks before the rest of Europe’s, Unai Emery says it is unfortunate and not normal, because the clubs are in a position to lose their players in the last minute without the possibility of getting suitable replacements.

Asked about the rumoured departure of left-back Nacho Monreal, the Arsenal boss candidly replies that it looks like his compatriot will be leaving Emirates Stadium before the European transfer window closes in seven days’ time.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal’s Spanish international defender Nacho Monreal could be set for a move to Real Sociedad this summer.

The Basque club have sold another Spanish international Alvaro Odriozola to Real Madrid for a reported fee of £30million, so they need a replacement for the youngster. Spanish football journalist Kike Marin is the person responsible for reporting of Real Sociedad’s interest in signing Monreal.

Not in Unai Emery’s plans

The Mirror claims that Monreal is not looking to leave the north London club this summer. In fact, that it could be a battle to persuade the defender to leave North London in the near future.
