Arsenal transfers: Carlos Vela hints at Gunners return
Arsenal transfers: Carlos Vela hints that he would be open to a return to Emirates Stadium
Carlos Vela has refused to rule out a possible return to Arsenal this summer.
The Mexican striker completed a £3.5m move to Real Sociedad from the Gunners in the summer of 2012 after failing to break into the first-team at Emirates Stadium.
I won’t close the door on Arsenal, or any team in England
The 25-year-old forward has scored 14 goals and made 11 assists in the Spanish league this season and has been linked with a move away from the La Liga side in recent weeks.
And Vela has left the door open to a potential move back to north London by revealing the details of a buy-back clause in his Sociedad contract.
“One possibility is my clause of €30m (£24.6m), but there’s other options and we’re looking at that, to see what we can and can’t do,” Vela told Radio Marca.
“Arsenal can come back for me at €4m (£3.3m) at any time, which is €1m 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.”
