£8.5M Gunnerstar Is Off To Serie A

Arsene Wenger will have to start the January transfer window fending off interest for one of his wonderkid’s. Serie A’s Chievo Verona have become surprise suitors of Mexican starlet Carlos Vela.

Vela, 21, has become frustrated at his lack of senior opportunities at the Emirates and has turned to Arsene Wenger for confirmation on his future. It is widely acknowledged that Vela does not command a first team billing for Arsenals senior side, and has been told he can leave in January on loan to gain match fitness.

The 33 cap international has been farmed out on loan in the past with successful spells in Spain with Salamanca and Osasuna although; these moves were used predominantly to gain a work permit for his move to the UK.

Vela it seems has fallen further down the Gunners striking pecking order following the arrival of Marouane Chamakh, which has meant only 4 Premiership appearances all from the subs bench.

With Wenger giving the thumbs up to a prospective loan deal interest no doubt will be high in the youngster. Unfortunately for Verona, it does not seem Arsenal are prepared to lose such a talented youngster on a permanent basis, so early in his career.
