Atletico Bilbao are desperate to sign Nacho Monreal this summer, according to reports in Spain.
Bilbao have a history of signing only players who are from Basque region of Spain, where the club is located and have labeled Monreal who happens to be from that region as their “dream signing”.
The Spanish giants are desperate to strengthen their defense but have been unable to do so because of their policy.
And Don Balon [via The Daily Cannon] claims Bilbao will like to sign Monreal this summer but are aware that Arsenal have no intention of selling the defender.
It’s more like the Spanish side are now waiting for Arsenal to decide selling the defender as they have expressed interest in signing him in the last two seasons.
Apparently, they had hoped Arsenal will be open to selling Monreal this summer, due to the arrival of Sead Kolasinac but they have been left disappointed as Wenger’s plan is for the Spaniard to battle with our new signing for the first team spot.
Monreal is currently happy at Arsenal but the story may be different this time next year if he struggles to compete with Kolasinac for the first team spot.
