Arsenal fans on Twitter more than happy to let Monreal leave for Barcelona

Just as the bizarre January transfer saga that took Kevin-Prince Boateng to the Camp Nou, it looks like this summer could have another strange saga bringing an unlikely star to the Catalan giants. This time around it’s been reported by Sport, via Tribal Football, that Nacho Monreal is a transfer target for Ernesto Valverde.

Unai Emery will be well aware of the Gunners’ woes when it comes to the transfer market. Funds are not at a premium for the North London club and they will certainly need to be looking to sell players before they buy in new ones. The fans are already looking at players to ship out, and whilst Monreal won’t recoup a massive fee, if he wants to leave for Barcelona then the fans won’t want to deny him that move.

One of the best things about Monreal is his versatility. Whilst he may be a left-back by trade, as he loses his legs the way he features in a flat four at the back is a talent he is quickly losing. Meanwhile, when he’s put in as the left-sided centre-back in a back three he’s able to perform at a much higher level. However, if Monreal wants to go and Emery wants funds, this move could be a perfect one.

A lot of Arsenal fans are keen to let Monreal go if he wants to leave yet they’d love to see him stay for one more season if possible as he’s a real fan favourite.
