Real Sociedad are nearing the signing of Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal, according to a report.

Real Sociedad are reportedly nearing the capture of Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal.

The 33-year-old has made 250 appearances for the Gunners since arriving from Malaga in January 2013, while he has also started and finished both of the club's Premier League games this season.

Monreal's contract at the Emirates Stadium will expire next summer, though, and Arsenal signed Kieran Tierney earlier this month with the view to becoming the club's future first-choice left-back.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Sociedad are confident of agreeing a deal for the 22-time Spain international, who has played 172 times in La Liga during spells with Malaga and Osasuna.

Theo Hernandez and Kevin Rodrigues shared the left-back duties at Sociedad last term, but the former left the Basque club this summer to join AC Milan on a permanent deal from Real Madrid.

Monreal has won three FA Cups and three Community Shields during his time at the Emirates Stadium.
