Arsenal fans agree with Emery that Monreal needs new deal

Arsenal have struggled to find their feet under the guidance of Unai Emery but improvements were shown prior to the international break following back-to-back wins over West Ham and Cardiff.

The Gunners are seeking a third consecutive win on Saturday when they travel to Newcastle but, amidst their on-field antics, have uncertainty surrounding a number of players – including Aaron Ramsey and Nacho Monreal.

Both players have entered the final 12 months of their deal and, while Ramsey has attracted the most gossip, Monreal has been praised by Emery this week ahead of the trip to Tyneside as the boss urged for him to be handed a new deal.

Signed in 2013 from Malaga, 32-year-old Monreal has been a regular for Arsenal in the past five years and has featured in each of the last three Premier League matches, scoring once.

Arsenal fans had their say on the matter on Twitter, where the majority agreed that the club need to hand extended terms to the Spain international. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
