It is being reported by the Evening Standard, that first-team regular, Nacho Monreal has not been offered a new contract at the North London club.
The 29-year old full back has current deal with the club that expires at the end of next season, but Arsene Wenger has confirmed no renewal of a deal will be taking place.
This has come as some surprise to the boozy Arsenal lads in the pub, and whilst Hector Bellerin and Calum Chambers offer exciting prospects in this position, Monreal has been a reliable servant of the club since he arrived.
The speculation over this players contract has fueled rumours that he may return to his homeland, and turn out for Athletic Bilbao – whether an offer surfaces remains to be seen though.
Our resident Gooners here in the Tavern feel that Monreal has significantly improved since being at the Emirates Stadium, and it would be a shame to see him leave the club!
Arsenal fans what do you make of this? Sad to see him go? Would you give him a new deal? Let us know below!
