Nacho Monreal has now made the finishing touches to his Arsenal transfer and put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the club.
The Spanish international may only be a left-back back, but being the Gunners’ solitary signing of the January transfer window means he will receive a rousing welcome to north London.
Monreal completed his photo shoot in Arsenal’s colours on Friday morning and here is the 26-year-old in the red and white.
Three minutes after the January transfer window closed, Arsenal finally announced the deal to sign the Malaga left-back and first to laud the new arrival was Arsene Wenger.
“We are delighted that Nacho Monreal has agreed to join us. We have been monitoring him for some time now and are really pleased that we’ve been able to agree this move today.” the Arsenal boss said
“Monreal is a strong left-sided defender with good experience at both club and international level. He is a technically gifted player, a good crosser in the final third and strong in the air. Monreal will add quality to our squad and of course, to our defensive unit. We all look forward to him playing for us.” he added
