But he missed 11 matches due to a hamstring injury.

During his time on the sidelines, boss Unai Emery made the switch to a back three with Sead Kolasinac impressing at wing-back.

Monreal made his long-awaited return for the Gunners when Shkodran Mustafi limped off against Huddersfield on Saturday.

But Arsenal have a major defensive crisis with Laurent Koscielny the only available centre-back to face Southampton next week so Emery may be reluctant to let the Spaniard leave.

Moreno, meanwhile, has fallen out of favour at Liverpool over the last year due to the emergence and excellence of Andrew Robertson.

Fellow Spaniard Moreno has played just 254 minutes of football across all competitions this season and featured just twice in the Premier League.

It appears Jurgen Klopp is keen on having him as a back up to Robertson but the right offer could tempt Liverpool into letting him leave.
