Hernandez concerned about Arsenal’s valuation
Eduardo Hernandez is concerned that Arsenal will price Carlos Vela out of a permanent move to Real Sociedad, according to The Daily Mail.
The Mexican assisted Sociedad in staving off relegation by contributing 12 goals in 35 appearances last term.
The Spanish club are now thought to be interested in bringing Vela to the Estadio Anoeta on a permanent basis. However, with the Gunners reportedly demanding £6 million for the 23-year old, fears are rife that the proposed move will collapse.
Eduardo Hernandez, Vela’s agent has voiced concerns over Arsenal’s valuation of the youngster:
“He is very happy at Sociedad, he wants to stay there, but Arsenal are a complicated club to deal with.”
Vela has been with Arsenal since 2005, who snapped him up when he impressed as a 16 year old in the U-17 World Cup, gaining notoriety by finishing with the tournaments Golden Boot. However, after 7 years, loans with Salamanca, Osasuna, West Brom and the aforementioned Sociedad and just 3 league goals for the North London club, the striker appears to be surplus to requirements at the Emirates and is keen to stay in San Sebastien, where his goals have proven vital.
