At the end of last month, Sport reported that Nacho Monreal ‘already knows’ about interest from Barcelona and the Arsenal defender would be open to the idea of making a switch to the Camp Nou.

Two days ago, we covered claims from Spain which stated the 33-year-old could return to La Liga in the summer, with Real Sociedad believed to be his next destination.

Friday’s edition of Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo brings their own update on the Gunners star being linked with the Blaugrana.

The former Malaga man is one of the options for Ernesto Valverde’s side.

Barca, as stated by the report, view Monreal as a ‘reliable player’ because the ‘positive thing’ about him is his experience and versatility as he can play as a left-back or as a central defender.

Even though Monreal and other options to find a backup for Jordi Alba have been looked at,  Mundo claims the decision is delayed as their priority is to strengthen other areas.
