Espanyol Barcelona Tries To Lure Vela Away From Emirates

La Liga outfit Espanyol Barcelona will make a last attempt to lure young Mexican Carlos Vela away from the Gunners to bolster their strike force.

According to reliable sources in Spain is Espanyol’s Director Deportiva Ramón Planes a long time admirer of the 21 years old and hopes to agree terms with the Arsenal management in the next week. Planes wants to fly out to London to discuss terms about a possible transfer of Carlitos, but there are doubts that the Gunners give the Mexican free for a transfer.

The Arsenal management have already rejected approaches by Deportivo La Coruna and Sevilla Football Club for Vela in front of the FIFA World Cup, but Ramòn Planes remains hopeful that he can seal a deal with Gunners chairman Peter-Hill-Wood for a season long loan with possible buy-option in the next week.

The Catalonia side is for the second time interested in the services of the Cancun native after failing last summer to bring the talented striker to Estadio Olympico de Montjuic.

Young Mexican Carlos Vela has returned to full training this evening at Waterstone College, the World Cup training ground of the Mexican national side. Vela has participated in light passing drills with fellow striker colleagues Giovani Dos Santos as well as Guillermo Franco, which is really good news for “El Bombardero” as he got back in contact with the ball.

Carlitos training was limited so far on jogging and sprints but in the late afternoon session the 21 years old rejoined his team-mates to get hope back to the El-Tri supporters that he can start against Diego Maradona’s Argentine side.

Of course it is still a very short amount of training time for Carlos to get back on fitness, but he has still two days to show Mexican head coach Javier Aguirre, that he is ready to go.

We will provide you tomorrow with the latest news on Vela’s fitness!
