Monreal harbours no doubts about how Arsenal will receive Koscielny return

Nacho Monreal insists Arsenal's playing squad would welcome Laurent Koscielny back with open arms.

The club captain refused to join Arsenal on their preseason tour of the US in order to force through a return to France.

However, Monreal says the 33-year-old would have no problem integrating his teammates.

Monreal said: "Yeah, why not?

"We respect Laurent a lot because he has played for Arsenal for a long time, he's our captain. It's something between the club and him.

"What I would like is they fix the problem and I think they will do it."
