Arsenal have denied to sell their left-back Nacho Monreal this month with Daily Mail claiming La Liga side Athletic Bilbao are keen to get him.
Mail reported that La Liga Athletic Bilbao are strongly linked with him in the last few days, however Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has denied to sell their full-back Monreal in the winter transfer window.
The 28-year-old has been a key player for Wenger’s side and the Frenchman is not planning to sell him this month.
Monreal has been a vital player for the Gunners in the absence of several regular players. He has been used not only as his favourite full-back role but also at central role due to the injury of Laurent Koscielny in the past. The Spanish defender played an exceptional part in Arsenal’s win over Manchester City.
While the La Liga side Athletic Bilbao are keen to strength their defence. Arsenal are also set to seal Gabriel Paulista deal but it doesnot mean a departure of Monreal.
Monreal who joined Emirates from Malaga in 2012 has not been a consistent player for the Gunners. He has made 23 appearances this season in all competitions.
