Arsenal full-back Nacho Monreal is reportedly being courted by a host of clubs in his native Spain after finding first-team opportunities difficult to come by this season, with Valencia leading the chase for his signature.
Monreal has been unable to dislodge Kieran Gibbs in the fight for a starting spot at the Emirates Stadium, with the England left-back finding form and fitness to keep his place in Arsene Wenger's starting XI.
Despite being a perennial substitute early in the campaign Monreal has so far kept his place in the Spain squad, providing La Roja coach with reliable cover for Jordi Alba.
With the World Cup looming large Valencia, Real Sociedad and Granada are all hoping to persuade Monreal that he should consider a move back to La Liga in January, according to The Mirror.
The 27-year-old only joined Arsenal this January in an £8.5m switch from Malaga, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger deciding to push through a move in the middle of last season to replace outgoing Andre Santos.
Despite having to regularly settle for a place on the bench Monreal has still made 15 appearances so far this season, regularly coming on to help Arsenal protect leads and maintain their four-point advantage at the top of the Premier League.
