Wenger reveals next position for Nacho Monreal after Kolasinac signing

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.”
