Arsenal have reportedly moved to extend Nacho Monreal's stay at the Emirates Stadium.
Monreal has spent the last six years with the Gunners, and the 32-year-old has gone on to make 227 appearances for the North London outfit in all competitions.
There have been suggestions that the left-sided defender could move on at the end of his deal, but according to ESPN, Arsenal have taken action to keep their long-serving player at the club.
The report claims that Arsenal have activated a 12-month option in Monreal's contract, extending his deal until the end of the 2019-2020 campaign.
Monreal could still receive interest - especially from teams competing in La Liga - but Arsenal have at least strengthened their position when it comes to a fee.
