And speaking ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash with Newcastle, Emery opened up on where his relationship with Ozil now stands.

Nacho Monreal deserves to extend his stay at Arsenal beyond this season, according to boss Unai Emery.

The former Sevilla and PSG coach endured a hard start to his Arsenal tenure, losing back-to-back matches against Manchester City and Chelsea, but victories against West Ham and Cadriff helped build momentum before the worldwide break.

"I have a very good relationship with Mesut and professionally I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances".

Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal is giving no immediate consideration to the prospect of retiring from football, the Evening Standard reports.

All players on global duty last week returned in good health and are available for selection, Arsenal said.

'First, I knew Nacho Monreal in Spain when he was playing in Osasuna and in Malaga.

"In his career, he played like a No. 10 and on the right coming in with his quality", Emery said.

In spite of the change in management at the Emirates Stadium, Monreal has managed to keep his place in the team, featuring in three of the club's four Premier League games, even going on to find the back of the net once.

Rafael Benitez believes Unai Emery was the ideal candidate to succeed Arsene Wenger. I look at him with the focus totally here.

Ozil, 29, has endured a hard start to the new season with the recent national team debacle that saw him declared his unavailability for Germany. He is very convinced about that in my conversations with him about it.
