Arsenal have been handed a boost in their pursuit of long term target Ignacio Camacho after the player hinted that he could leave Malaga, reports the Express.
The report has suggested that the Gunners have been keeping tabs on the Spanish international for some time, with the player now admitting that a move could take place in the future.
Speaking to reporters, Camacho said: "If I do leave here then I want it to be done well and that Malaga are not angry with me.
"But I also think you need to look at the market and its value in case you leave. We all know Malaga's situation, which isn't too bad, but they could be forced to sell for a reasonable price.
"It's always good when teams are looking at you because it means you are doing things right, both individually and collectively. The situation at Malaga is good and that benefits me.

"I have a contract here but if anyone wants to come in for me, then they will have to negotiate."
It now remains to be seen as to whether Gunners boss Arsene Wenger steps up his interest in the talented 24-year-old anytime soon.
Gabriel will stay in defence
New Arsenal signing Gabriel, meanwhile, has revealed that he used to play as a striker, reports the Daily Star.
However, the Brazilian ace, who joined the Gunners from La Liga side Villarreal last month, has insisted that he won't be moving out of the back-line anytime soon.
"But I never did well. I kept going back and back through the team, then I went to a club and they put me on the defence, and then I started playing there and it really excited me. Nothing would take me out of the defence now."
The Mirror have reported that striker Danny Welbeck is set to return to action this weekend for the club's north London derby showdown with Tottenham.
The England international has been out of action with a thigh injury, but is now in contention for a starting role at White Hart Lane this weekend, as the Gunners look to continue their impressive recent run.
The forward's return will no doubt prove a huge boost for the Gunners, while fans will also be hoping that star man Alexis Sanchez stars on Saturday.
