Arsenal line up incredible left-back to challenge Monreal

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 20:10 Dec 1st 2016

There was a time when it was difficult for Arsene Wenger to choose between Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs, but the Spaniard has been his preferred option for a while now.

With little threat to his place in the starting XI, there is a real danger that the former Malaga defender could become complacent, so Arsenal are keen to bring in a viable challenger for his position.

FAOUZI GHOULAM

According to reports in the Daily Star, the Gunners are one of a number of clubs interested in securing the signature of Faouzi Ghoulam.

The Algeria international has gone from strength to strength since joining Napoli in January 2014, emerging as a key player for the Italian outfit:

In addition to playing a part in 29 top-flight clean sheets, the 25-year-old has also shown off his attacking instincts by delivering nine assists.

Over in the Premier League during the same period, Monreal has weighed in with 37 clean sheets and five assists, so adding Ghoulam to the squad would give Wenger a more adventurous option.
