'We need to find a new contract' Unai Emery demands club hands Arsenal star a new deal

Nacho Monreal is a hugely popular figure at Arsenal and it looks like fans will be able to see the Spaniard remain in north London for a few more years.

Monreal joined the Gunners from Malaga in 2012, but his current deal at the Emirates is due to expire at the end of the season.

The left-back has confirmed, however, that he is in talks about extending his stay.

"At the moment we are talking with the club," said Monreal. "I've always said I am really happy, I feel very happy playing for Arsenal.

"I came six years ago. I have a good relationship with them. We are in contact in any moment so don't worry about that. I am happy here. That is the most important thing."

With Sead Kolasinac currently injured, Monreal has once again started the season as Arsenal's first choice left-back.

Nacho Monreal is a popular player at Arsenal.

He turns 33 in February but has started the season in fine form, following on from his impressive displays throughout 2017/18 which saw him finish runner-up to Aaron Ramsey in the club's player of the season poll.

And Unai Emery admits he has been surprised by the level of Monreal's game, following his arrival at the club this summer and says a new deal for the defender is essential.

"I knew Nacho in Spain when he was playing in Osasuna and in Malaga," said Emery. "After six years here, I came and I know him as a new Nacho Monreal.

"I can say that I am very happy with him because he is 32 years old but I think physically, with his performances with us in matches, he is playing with a very good level.

"The rest of that, for me, is very important. I think we need to find a new contract with him to stay with the Arsenal team."
