Arsene Wenger has revealed he is considering granting Bolton's request to take Carlos Vela on loan.

The 21-year-old Mexican forward has seen his first-team chances limited this season, with the likes of Marouane Chamakh, Nicklas Bendtner, Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott all ahead of him in the Gunners pecking order.

Owen Coyle is keen to take the pacy Vela to Reebok Stadium, where midfielder Jack Wilshere enjoyed a productive spell last season.

Wenger confirmed the decision would be based on the best opportunity for Vela to play, and he said: "Bolton is one of the clubs that has shown an interest - we have many clubs that have shown interest and I am not surprised."

He added: "I want Carlos to play at the top, top level and the club who gives me the biggest guarantee to play will have the chance to sign him.

"I would expect it to happen in early January because he is keen to play.

"He has been patient and worked very hard - he has matured a lot and changed a lot in a positive way and is a fantastic boy who deserves to play.

"He is a fantastic talent and I do not want to lose him and I want him now to get experience."
