Arsenal are closely monitoring Hajduk Split young sensation Ante Vukuic with a view to making an offer for the 19 year old before his goalscoring antics attract even more attention. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has always had a keen eye for young talent and Vukuic certainly fits the bill.

Vukuic is the leading goalscorer in the Croatian Championship with 11 goals from 16 appearances and with the likes of Nicklas Bendtner unhappy at The Emirates it would be no surprise to see Wenger cash in on the young Dane and replace him with Vukuic. (Footylatest)

Real Zaragoza have tabled a bid for Arsenal striker Carlos Vela , according to the Spanish Radio station Cadena Ser.
The 21-year-old Mexican has again been limited to brief appearances for Arsenal this season, although he scored twice against Shakhtar Donetsk and once against Bolton.

Vela has played an impressive 33 games for Mexico, despite being only 21-years-old, scoring nine goals in the process. (IMScouting)

For differing reasons Arsene Wenger may feel it is time to freshen up his striking options and offload Carlos Vela and Nicklas Bendtner. The Mexican international may not have had many chances to prove himself but it seems he has saved his decent performances for Cup ties and has been none to impressive when given a rare taste of Premier League action.

Nicklas Bendtner on the other hand has actually improved as a player year on year but has apparently fallen out with Wenger over some ill thought out comments from the Danish international in relation to his lack of first team opportunities. Interest from the likes of Bayern Munich and Juventus may well end in an Emirates exit.

Which brings us to Ante Vukuic who has been in a rich vein of form at Hadjuk Split this season, netting 15 goals already this season, including perhaps most importantly a four goals in Europa League action. The 19 year old is considered one of the hottest prospects in Croatia and he is valued at around £8m and appears to have an admirer in Arsene Wenger.
