Arsenal: Vela hints at return

Ex-Arsenal striker Carlos Vela has revealed that he could return to the Emirates in the near future.

As reported by The Daily Mail, the Real Sociedad man has admitted that if Arsene Wenger doesn't come back in for him, then he could move somewhere else for £24.6 million in the up coming window. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to whether Arsenal are interested in taking the striker back to the Emirates, as they have the option to sign him for just £3.3m.

With Vela's proven track record in Spain - with 45 goals in 120 appearances - perhaps Arsenal could be tempted to activate his buyback clause. 

With Nicklas Bendtner and Yaya Sanogo the only real back-ups for French international Olivier Giroud, Arsenal fans will be hoping the club purchase a new striker this summer. 

And that man could well, be Vela, as the Mexican striker told Radio Marca: "One possibility is my clause of €30million (£24.6m), but there’s other options and we’re looking at that, to see what we can and can’t do.

"Arsenal can come back for me at €4million (£3.3m) at any time, which is €1million more than Real Sociedad paid. I look at things differently these days and I won’t close the door on Arsenal, or any team in England. I think I’m better prepared to play in another country now."

For now though, Arsenal will be concentrating on securing a place in next year's Champions League. A victory over West Brom tomorrow for The Gunners will make sure Europe's elite competition returns to north London for another year.
