According to reports in Spain, Real Zaragoza have tabled a bid for Arsenal forward Carlos Vela amid speculation the young Gunner is concerned about his lack of first team football.
Although the Mexican international started last night’s Carling Cup victory over Wigan Athletic, the 21-year-old has cut a frustrated figure this season with Marouane Chamakh, Robin Van Persie and Nikolas Bendtner all above him in the pecking order.
The Emirates youngster’s brother yesterday warned the Premier League chasing club that the striker would consider leaving North London in the not too distant future should he continue to play a marginal role this season, and according to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, Real Zaragoza have already made an offer for Vela. (

Many sources believe that Mexican youngster Carlos Vela is sick of waiting to get his run in the first team and will look to leave the Emirates at the earliest opportunity. The 21 year old has managed just three Premier League starts since he moved to the north London club in November 2005 and it seems that there is some very real interest being shown from La Liga.

Vela completed two loan spells in Spain, first with Osasuna and then with Salamanca and by all accounts he greatly impressed and now it appears Real Zaragoza are ready to offer around £7m for Vela, a fee that Wenger may well decide to accept if the talented attacker makes it clear he wishes to leave.

For the record Zaragoza are currently bottom of La Liga, with just one win in their first 13 league games.
