ARSENAL striker Carlos Vela is a target for Valencia.
Officials from the Spanish club were in London yesterday hoping to get the Mexican striker, 21, on loan with a view to a permanent £2million summer deal.

Whilst Arsene Wenger has expressed his desire to keep Mexican international Carlos Vela the fact is that the young striker seems to be very low down on the Gunners pecking order and any loan deal that he secures this month, and it seems likely he will be farmed out, may well end up with a permanent deal being agreed.
A move to Valencia will surely tempt the 21 year old and Unai Emery’s lack of effective fire power should mean that any loan deal will result in a likely run of first team football which is exactly what Vela needs. The Mestalla side sits in fourth place in La Liga but has only managed to net 26 goals thus far this season and have had to rely a great deal on new signing Aritz Aduriz to provide both the assistance and finishing touches to clinch points.
Carlos Vela has managed just three Premier League starts during his five years at the north London club, albeit large chunks of that period have seen him on loan elsewhere it does seem that he is now nowhere nearer to securing regular first team football than he was 18 months ago.
