The Arsenal and Mexico striker Carlos Vela is reported to be looking at other clubs in a desperate attempt to gain some first team football, which is sadly lacking at the Emirates for the ever-promising-but-not-delivering youngster.
His brother revealed last week that Vela was keen to make a move, possibly as early as January, as he has finally realised that Wenger doesn’t think he will make the grade with Arsenal.
The arrival of Marouane Chamakh in the summer to compete with Nicklas Bendtner and Robin Van Persie was the final nail in the coffin, but the good news for Vela is that there are some top Spanish teams willing to give him a chance in La Liga.
Sevilla and Valencia are the two latest teams to be linked with Vela, but they may have to contend with Swansea City who have also registered a desire to take the Mexican on loan!
The boss of top Mexican side Chivas Guadalajara, Jorge Vergara, has also said he would love him to return home, but he could never afford him, and Vela’s brother also made it clear that Carlos would be remaining in Europe.
Vergara said: “I wonder why Giovani went from Barcelona and why Carlos Vela might be leaving Arsenal?
“I admit they have great ability, but I feel they are wasting their talent. Hopefully that will change because they are losing the best years of their lives.
“But these players would be very expensive.”
I’m not sure that Vela would be so expensive, unless of course he does go on loan to Spain and plays brilliantly for the second half of the season……..
