Real Sociedad refuse to drop bid for Arsenal fullback Monreal

Real Sociedad refuse to drop their bid for Arsenal fullback Nacho Monreal.

Mundo Deportivo says La Real sports chief Robert Olabe is seeking a new left-back and is prioritising Monreal.

The former Osasuna defender enjoys great support inside the board room of La Real, where they have been trying to bring the 32 year-old back to Spain for over two years.

For the moment, Monreal is focused on preseason training at Arsenal and won't agitate for a move away.

However, Olabe has been told Arsenal are willing to sell for a reasonable price should he formalise their interest.
