Spain full-back Nacho Monreal feels Arsenal's own brand of tiki-taka football will help him settle quickly into life at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners moved to push through a deadline day deal with Malaga after England defender Kieran Gibbs hobbled off in Wednesday night's draw against Liverpool with a thigh problem. Monreal, 26, could make his debut in Saturday's home clash against Stoke, and is relishing the chance to be part of the Gunners' traditional quick passing game.

Speaking in an interview with Arsenal Media, the Spain international said: "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."
