Arsenal are looking to replace ageing left-back Nacho Monreal with Liverpool flop Alberto Moreno, according to reports.

The Gunners full-back has been a loyal servant for the club since his £9million move from Malaga in 2013.

Arsenal find themselves fifth in the league and are looking to chase the top teams.

As they try to continue improving, it appears they are looking for a left-back, possibly as a long-term replacement of Monreal.

He has struggled with injuries and has a contract set to expire next summer.

Monreal has played over 200 games – scoring ten goals and assisting 16 during his spell with the north London side.

This season he has been out in parts with a hamstring injury but has still made ten appearances, assisting three and scoring one.

However, the Mirror have reported that Gunners boss Unai Emery is looking to replace the 32-year-old as his overhaul of Arsene Wenger’s squad continues and have identified Liverpool flop Alberto Moreno.

Moreno signed for Liverpool in 2014 and new Arsenal boss Unai Emery is reported be a fan of the defender having worked with the 26-year-old at Sevilla.

Moreno has failed to find a regular starting place in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side with Andy Robertson preferred over the Spanish full back.
