Athletic Bilbao president Josu Urrutia admits they are shopping in the Premier League for a new fullback, with Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal on his shopping list.
The Spaniard has failed to make the impact that Arsene Wenger had hoped and nowadays finds himself sitting on the bench rather than playing.
Now that could all come to an end after Urrutia stated that he is watching the Spaniard, along with Chelsea’s Cesare Azpilicueta.
Urrutia told AS: “There was interest from Athletic in players, although it was focused on Illarramendi. There are not so many players: [Asier] Illarramendi, Raúl García, [Nacho] Monreal, [César] Azpilicueta.
