Malaga star Monreal joins Arsenal

Eurosport informs that Arsenal have signed left-back Nacho Monreal for £8.5 million from Malaga in in their only deal of the January transfer window.

The move of the 26-year-old Spain international has been registered with the Football Association just 20 minutes before the end of the transfer window as Nacho Monreal flew to England to pass his medical. Although Arsenal have not disclosed the details of the deal Monreal is rumoured to have signed four-and-half-year deal worth around £55,000 per week.

The Gunners boss Arsene Wenger could not hide his delight with the signing saying that Arsenal have got an excellent addition to the squad with a substantial experience at both club and international level. Wenger revealed: “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.”
