Reports further suggest Monreal is now set to return to Real Sociedad, his boy-hood club.

The latest move has opened up space financially and in the squad for Spanish boss Unai Emery to try and sign Celtic star Kieran Tierney.

Arsenal are also plotting a fresh offer for the Scottish star after an initial £15m bid was turned down.

"It's going to have to take a lot more than what they’ve offered the first time around,” Hoops manager Neil Lennon noted after Arsenal bid was rejected.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have completed the signing of Brazilian forward Gabriel Martinelli from Ituano Futebol Clube this summer.

The 18-year-old forward has made tremendous progress since making his debut at the Sao Paulo-based club in 2017, scoring 10 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions for the outfit.

Martinelli joined the north Londoners in a long term deal valued around £5 million but will have to fight his way into the team's starting line up.
