Vela linked with Turkish move


The exit door opens for yet another Arsenal player this summer and this time it’s Carlos Vela.

The Mexican was sent out on loan last season to West Brom but despite two goals early in that spell he had a disappointing time overall.

Reports in today’s Turkish press (via the Mexican pressGoogle translation) suggest Galatasaray are monitoring his situation, and although their first choice is former Arsenal man Jose Antonio Reyes it is believed Fatih Terim has already made contact with Arsenal about Vela’s availability.

Vela has also been linked with newly promoted Swansea City who tried to sign him on loan last January. He signed a new long term deal with Arsenal in December 2009 but is another of Arsene Wenger’s youngsters who have failed to live up to their early promise.

He failed to start a single Premier League game for Arsenal last season and made only six starts from a total of just twenty-one appearances for both clubs.
