Report: Real Oviedo close in on loan deal for Flores

Spanish second tier outfit Real Oviedo have confirmed their interest in signing Arsenal youngster Marcelo Flores on loan for the season.

In an interview with ESPN Mexico (translated by Sport Witness), club president Martin Pelaez confirmed that negotiations with the Gunners for the Mexico international were underway.

“Any club, not from Mexico, from the world would like him,” he said.

“His name impresses and it is not easy. He can give any team his talent, he is very young, but very talented and you can see that he is a winner and must add talent and willingness.”

Flores had been tipped to be part of the Gunners’ US tour squad but was left at home by Mikel Arteta who opted to select a squad made up predominantly of senior stars.

In recent weeks there have been rumours that Miguel Azeez could also move to Spain. Girona were thought to have made an offer to the midfielder who last season spent time with Portsmouth.

So far this summer, eight Gunners have been sent out on loan to gain further senior experience.

Anyone know if the Azeez rumor is for a permanent transfer or a loan?

In Flores, Biereth, Moller, Patino and Salah, we have a crop of youngsters with real possibility of being the next Saka, ESR and Nketiah: academy products that can hold their own in the first team.
Good move for Flores, even though I would prefer a Championship team in England to a second division team in Spain.


I would tend to agree but maybe it’s good he isn’t getting clattered by Championship players week in and week out, maybe next year.


I’d include Balogun in that group even though he is a bit older.


“His name impresses and it is not easy.” Impressive, perhaps, but not easy? What’s so difficult about Marcelo Flores?


Not easy to get him on loan, when everyone else wants him. Was how I read it


I’m sure that’s what it was. Still funny though.
