Real Sociedad striker Carlos Vela has revealed that a return to Arsenal could be on the cards in the future, despite leaving the club on a permanent basis in the summer of 2012.

The Mexican striker finally left Arsenal last summer, joining Spanish side Real Sociedad after a successful loan-spell at the club in the previous season.

During his loan spell, Vela was able to notch 12 goals in 35 appearances for Sociedad and, since joining on a permanent basis, he has been able to notch up 13 goals in La Liga.

During his six-year stint at Arsenal, he was only able to score three Premier League goals - and it was mainly separated by loan spells away at various clubs including Salamanca, Osasuna, West Brom and, finally, Real Sociedad.

After impressing during his time in Spain, there is ongoing speculation that Arsenal may look to buy back the 24-year-old striker, as there is a clause in his contract which would allow the Gunners to bring him back for a relatively cheap price.

Despite the speculation, Vela insists that he isn't thinking about his future and believes he should concentrate on performing well for his current side.

"Going back to Arsenal? It could happen at any moment, but I don't want to think about it," he told L'Equipe. "My life is at Real Sociedad, and it is with that shirt that I want to play in the Champions League next season."
