Arsene Wenger has spoken about the importance of defender Nacho Monreal, who has become an important part of the Arsenal first team in the last couple of years.
The Spaniard was a relatively unknown product when he came to the Emirates stadium for around £ 8 million from Spanish outfit Malaga. Given the intense competition for the left back and right back positions in the Arsenal team at the time,Monreal was not expected to be the first team regular. In fact, he made only 10 league appearances in his first season at the club. This has consistently improved over the years andMonreal has already made 20 appearances in the league this season.
