Levante midfielder Ruben Garcia has been attracting the attention of English club Arsenal, according to the Daily Mirror.
Ruben played in the first team for Levante last season and managed to score four goals in the 31 appearances in all competitions.
Having impressed many in Spanish football, it is no surprise that there is interest in him as the young winger has become a key first-team player in just one season after playing in the Levante B team in previous years.
Chief Arsenal scout Steve Rowley has stated that he is impressed with the defensive work that Ruben brings to the table with his high work rate.
Ruben has had some experience in the Europa League this season and has played alongside some very experienced players such as Sergio Ballesteros and Obafemi Martins, which suggests that Ruben may have the qualities and experience that Arsenal may be looking for.
Ruben has joined the rest of the Levante Squad, currently going through pre-season training after returning from the U20 World Cup in Turkey, where the Spaniards could not defend their title after being knocked out in the quarter-finals.
Garcia made three out of his total five appearances for the Spanish side in the tournament.
Despite this attention Ruben claims that he is happy at the club and that the team is 'excited' about the season ahead and that manager Joaquin Caparros gives him a lot of confidence.
These remarks suggest that Ruben sees himself at Levante next season, but there is no question that teams like Arsenal will look upon him in the future.
