Nacho Monreal is on the verge of leaving Arsenal after agreeing a contract with Real Sociedad, according to reports in Spain.

I think we still need him, not to start every match, but his experience is invaluable. He is knocking on a bit.

Keep him till Tierney is ready to play - complete the transfer in January ?

No keep him period. The team needs him badly. Tierney could get injured again. Groin injuries have a tendency to keep coming back. Lastly I would hate to see Kolasinac starting many games. That man does not know how to defend period. He is decent going forward but that is about it.

On tonight's showing I thought he'd already gone.

People want Monreal to leave based on struggling against the European champions away? I'm pretty sure all left backs in the league struggle at Anfield.

Yh let's get rid of him with no chance of replacement so we can play Kolasinac and a young and unproven Tierney there.

He has probably been our most consistent performer in recent years, though yes he has declined a lot over the last 2 or 3 seasons, but we'll be leaving ourselves short at LB till Tierney is fully fit.

Surely not worth the risk for a minimal transfer fee and and a few months wages? Unless he really, REALLY wants out?

Sadly his lack of pace cost us one of the goals yesterday, maybe there is a suitable player nearing fitness at the moment.



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Wouldn't be the first player I'd look to lose bit clearly Ng out the squad is probably a good idea generally. We have three first team leftbacks. That's too many, we need to have the third place taken by a youth player in my opinion for the homegrown rule but also for development.

Monreal can fill in at CB as he has shown before. Some may argue that he plays better as a CB than at LB. And he has a tendency to score some goals too. I don't think we should let him leave unless he really wants to.

If Unai is letting him leave, I can only assume that he is looking to upgrade Saka to the first team.

Because a winger is the obvious replacement for a LB/CB ?

From Goal's Arsenal correspondence Chris Wheatley - "He's still a raw talent but will benefit from playing at left-back in his long-term development, a position that the Gunners will look to strengthen in over the coming seasons".

Well if Chris Wheatley says so.

Arsenal suffered another set-back in their left-back options on Tuesday, with u23 starter Tolaji Bola suffering an injury against Northampton Town.

News is that Bellerin and Tierney will resume training far earlier than expected

Tierney and Bellerin are coming back from significant injuries and surgery, so there's always the chance of recurrence. Plus they will need time to get back to their best.

Any knock to AMN and we lose our current fill-in for both positions. That means only Sead as our proper fullback (and some would even say he is not true fullback).

Are there anyone in the youth/reserves who can step up? I mean really step-up and have an impact (not "okay for his age" type of ready).

Monreal apparently leaving after Spurs game.

This makes no sense at all. He's actually first choice currently and will be a quality backup if Tierney doesn't hit the ground running.

Hes quite old so we wont be getting much transfer fee and his wages aren't extortionate. It doesn't sound like he's forcing his way out so what exactly is the reasoning behind this.

Really disappointing if this goes through. It's an unnecessary risk.

No risk at all.
Just watch that Liverpool game again.
