Arsenal are reportedly intent on repurchasing Carlos Vela from Real Sociedad in the summer, with the view to perhaps a quick a profit on him.
The Mexican moved permanently to Anoeta last summer for a fee of €3m, but with a clause inserted that allows the Gunners to take him back this coming summer for €4.2m.
Arsenal have been reported in recent weeks as increasingly keen and likely to do this, but are still seen in Spain as an unwanted destination for Vela.
AS report today that if the player is reluctant, the club are prepared to take him back to then re-sell him for a higher fee elsewhere.
La Real have reportedly told Spanish media sources that they have yet to have any contact from Arsenal.
