Arsenal have already offered full-back Nacho Monreal a new three-year contract to remain in north London.
According to the Daily Mail, the Spanish ace, who has enjoyed an impressive start to the season, is likely to sign the deal that is seemingly already in front of him.
Monreal is now ahead of England international Kieran Gibbs in the pecking order at the Emirates, so will be hoping to kick on under the guidance of Arsene Wenger in the coming years.
At 29-years-old, the former Malaga man is no spring chicken, however, he continues to prove his credentials in the Premier League week in, week out.
It appears, then, that he will follow in the footsteps of striker Olivier Giroud, who agreed a new deal with the club in the summer.
Let's be honest, Monreal isn't exactly going to turn the Gunners into title contenders, but he remains a key player for the club going forward.
On top of that, he's now one of the most established defenders in the division, so the club must retain his services. A three-year deal makes sense for all involved, so surely the contract will be signed sooner rather than later.
After sitting out of last night's Capital One Cup clash with Tottenham, the defender will be hoping to return to the side for this weekend's fixture with high-flying Leicester City.
Does Monreal deserve this new deal? Have your say below!
