The agent of Carlos Vela says the Mexican forward is not for sale and will continue at Arsenal next season.
Eduardo Hernandez told ESPN Radiofórmula, “I’ve had eight conversations with Arsenal, the most recent was last Friday, and Carlos is an Arsenal player, he’ll stay at Arsenal and is not for sale”.
Hernandez spoke about Vela’s loan spell at West Brom and his progess at Arsenal, saying “The process with Carlos is a little bit slow. Arsene Wenger is an extremely demanding coach, he sent him on loan for 6 months to West Brom not with the results he wanted, but, nevertheless, everything is going very well”.
Vela has been linked with moves to Anderlecht and Turkey this summer and Arsenal fans will be somewhat bemused by his agent’s insistence things are going ‘very well’.
Despite being issued the number 11 jersey last summer, indicating Vela was very much in the first team plans, his season was a big disappointment. A chance on loan at West Brom did little to suggest he was ready to make any kind of impact at Arsenal and these declarations about his future sound very much like posturing ahead of a transfer away from the club.
