Arsenal update: Fernando Amorebieta deal off. Nacho Monreal player stats are very impressive.

It looks like there could be great news for Arsenal fans about the signing of Nacho Monreal. But it less encouraging news from Spain about the central defender Fernando Amorebieta from Athletic Bilbao.

Goal.com which broke the story initially is now saying that the player has changed his mind and wants to stay in Spain for now.

The 27 year old Venezuelan (though he was born in Spain) is out of contract the end of the season and is being monitored by a number of Premiership clubs.

As for Monreal the very useful Squawka has just published his stats for the season and they look really good. He has only been on the losing side three times this season – Malaga are currently fourth in La Liga – has won an average 83% of his tackles and 66% of his headed duels. He has been player of the day more time than any other Malaga player this season – not bad going for a left back.

    So what happens to Gibbs when he’s fit agin in 3 weeks time? One of the real bright spots in the team this season relegated to the bench? Meanwhile the chasms in midfield and central defence go untreated…

    family enclosure man, if you can point me towards a time period where Gibbs stayed injury free for 2 months mid-season I’ll start to feel sorry for the lad. Reality is, we need 2 good left backs, not 1.

    Three weeks out at Arsenal usually equates to months.Do you wanted to see Santos ass around the pitch for that amount of time.This situation and the others you mention should have been sorted out along time ago.But Arsene for you.
