Arsenal are being linked with a January move for Spanish starlet Sergio Canales.

The 19-year-old former Real Sociedad midfielder moved to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer, but is thought to have fallen out-of-favour under Jose Mourinho at the club. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly ready to pounce.

A string of Barclays Premier League clubs were interested in the player before his move to Los Blancos, and the Gunners are thought to have continued their tracking of the player.

Wenger is renowned for getting the best out of young talent in north London, and the Frenchman hopes that Canales can become the next in a long line of starlets who have benefited at Arsenal.

Chances under the 'special one' have been limited for the Spain U21 international, with Mesut Ozil and Angel Di Maria fighting for the same position at the La Liga giants.

The player's father has insisted that he will stay and fight for his place at the Spanish capital, but a move to Arsenal is thought to be seen as a positive step with regards to the player's development.

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas could be used in any possible negotiations for the player, with the Spanish international a prime example of the Emirates potential at the Arsenal academy.

A fee in the region of €10 million is thought to required if Arsenal are to secure the player's services permanently, claims Sportsvibe, while a loan move would not be completely out of the question for the Gunners.
