The January transfer window is not far off anymore, leaving many European clubs on the ball of their toes, just waiting in the corner to swoop in on their targets.
Arsenal could be heavily hammered next term, if they do not find a quick long-term replacement for Nacho Monreal.
The Gunners backfield have shown tweaks of vulnerability due to spates of injury that’s left them striken, and bare against opponents.
It was glaring in their last Premier League fixture before the international break against Wolves.
Wolves quick breaks and swift run-ins in their goal area showed how much seal of strength in Unai Emery’s backline had been severed due to injuries.
Monreal has been ruled out for a return after a sharp blow to his hamstring. Though he’s on a process of recuperation, Arsenal’s biggest problem is hammering out a deal for the Spain international.
Both parties are gulfs apart in nearing a good deal for Monreal, and Gunners looks to have turn their heads to fellow compatriot and Liverpool outcast Alberto Moreno.
Moreno is keen on leaving Liverpool, after a wasted career at the outfit. Monreal’s contract runs out at the end of the season, which could trigger a tantalising swap deal from both ends.
Emery and Moreno go way back during his stint at Sevilla, and his interest in the Liverpool player doesn’t come as surprising, if the future of Monreal remains a huge hanging doubt.
