Reports from Spain claim that Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal is the new defender on Barcelona’s radar. Barca believe that he has the qualities to play for the Catalans and will also be available for an affordable price of €10 million.
Reportedly, Monreal is also keen on a transfer to the Catalan club after the surprise approach.
Don Balon claim the Spaniard has already held initial talks with Barca chiefs in London over a return to La Liga – something he’d be keen on even if he’s only offered a bench role at the Nou Camp.
Despite not exactly being a world class performer at any point of his career, Monreal has been one of Arsenal’s most consistent and reliable players since he joined the club.
The 33-year-old may now be looking for one last big move, and a backup role at Barcelona could be ideal for both parties.
