Spanish champions feel Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal could be the ideal fit for their squad…
Read more Arsenal transfer news.
Spanish Champions Atletico Madrid are hoping to sign Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla and Nacho Monreal this summer, reports the Metro.
Atletico are rebuilding after losing Filipe Luis and Diego Costa to Chelsea, and believe that they can persuade the Gunners to sell their Spanish duo.
Both Cazorla and Monreal joined Arsenal from Malaga not so long ago, and it will be interesting to see whether boss Arsene Wenger would entertain any offers for the Spanish internationals.
Cazorla played on the left-flank for the Gunners for the majority of last season, but with Arsenal having signed Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona recently, he could be surplus to requirements. Monreal too has not been a regular at Arsenal as he fell behind English left-back Kieran Gibbs in the pecking order, and might push for a move to play more elsewhere.
However, Wenger would not want to put the burden of signing more players in the transfer window upon himself as he builds steadily towards the goal of regaining the Premier League title.
