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.
