Santi Cazorla has heaped praise on Arsenal new-boy Nacho Monreal and believes the defender has already adapted to the rigours of the Premier League.

Monreal, 27, joined the Gunners from Malaga on transfer deadline day back in January and the left-back has already made six appearances and scored one goal for Arsene Wenger’s men.

And Cazorla, who moved to Arsenal last summer, was thrilled to see his former Malaga team-mate join him at Emirates Stadium.

“He’s a very good signing, and he’s proving it,” Cazorla told Arsenal Player.

“Nacho is a footballer I really enjoy watching and playing with. I spent last season with him at Malaga and he was a vital player for the team.

“He’s adapted to the Premier League very well. What’s more, our style of play suits him because he’s someone with a lot of movement.

“I think Arsenal have really got it right with the transfer. I’m very happy because he’s a great mate.”
