La Liga Giants Consider Offering Arsenal Star Two Year Contract

Barcelona have made Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal a top summer target, according to Sport.

The Catalan publication reports Barca are keen on recruiting an understudy for Jordi Alba, with the Gunners star one of three potential candidates.

In addition to Monreal, Liverpool’s Alberto Moreno and Atletico Madrid’s Felipe Luis are also being considered.

All three left-backs are available on a free transfer at the end of the season and Barcelona are looking for a short-term fix before investing more heavily in a younger fullback.

The La Liga champions are only looking to offer a two-year contract to a new left-back, and they are not willing to pay a transfer fee.

There were reports a couple of months back that Monreal had extended his stay at Arsenal for another year, but the news was never confirmed by the club.

The Spaniard, who turned 33 earlier this week, could leave when his current deal expires in June.
