Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are trying to work out why Arsene Wenger wants to bring back one of their former youngsters.
Metro claim that Mexican forward Carlos Vela is reportedly close to re-joining the North London club this summer for a cut price fee.
Vela is currently at La Liga side Real Sociedad after the Spanish outfit turned his loan deal into a permanent signing following a successful period at the Anoeta.
That looked as if it could be the end for Vela’s Arsenal dream but reports have surfaced suggesting that Wenger stuck a more than reasonable buy-back clause into the sale deeds.
The fee is believed to be between £3 million and £4 million and with 20 goals and 13 assists in La Liga this season, it is no surprise that Wenger is keen on a potential reunion.
It is believed that Arsenal scouts will be sent to monitor the youngsters’ work this off-season before they decide whether to thrust him back into the Gunners’ first-team plans.
Arsenal want the pacy attacker to supplement the attacking threats of Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil next season and it’s believed that Vela is keen on a return to North London.
Arsenal fans. A £3 million bid for a player that has scored 20 La Liga goals this season seems a right bargain. Do you agree? Let us know your thoughts below.
