Nacho Monreal feels he suits Arsenal's style of play.

The 26-year-old believes he can settle in fast.

"I hope I can," he told Arsenal Player. "The Premier League is one of the strongest there is and everyone knows about it. It’s a completely different way of playing to the Spanish League - it’s a lot more physical, for example. As the days go by I’ll get used to things and I’ll give my all.

"Arsenal like to keep the ball, which is beneficial for me and I like this part of the team’s game. I love playing with the ball at my feet, short, sharp touches, and good movement.

"I think Arsenal do have certain elements of Spanish football philosophy. The Spanish people know that there are players of great quality in this team and I hope we can play good football."
