Arsene Wenger has highlighted the difference Sead Kolasinac’s arrival will make in where Nacho Monreal’s plays next season.
Arsenal finally confirmed the arrival of Kolasinac on a free transfer on Tuesday after months of speculation.
The arrival of the Bosnia international, who is unlikely to sit on the bench, has created a bit of confusion over Nacho Moreal’s position in the starting eleven for the upcoming campaign.
And according to Wenger, the Spaniard, who played a pivotal role in Arsenal’s successful FA Cup run last season, will now be deployed at centre-back.
“It’s very important that we have that as well, because we have Kieran Gibbs, we have Nacho Monreal and we have him,” the Arsenal manager said
“But Nacho plays a lot now in central defence and in a three-man system I see him in there.
“So overall, I think [Kolasinac] can contribute a lot to help us to be more dangerous going forward.”
