Arsene Wenger closing in on £7m Spaniard

Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Valencia midfield Daniel Parejo the Daily Mail understands with the player set to move to the Emirates Stadium in January.

Manager Arsene Wenger keen to bring him to North London with representatives from the Gunners in Spain on Thursday and Friday to meet the player and his agent.

The 22-year-old has emerged as a target as the Frenchman continues to try and strengthen his side in the wake of Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas leaving the club during the summer.

It’s thought a fee of £7 million would be enough to secure Parejo’s services with the 22-year-old keen on a return to England despite only joining the La Liga side in June.

A product of the Real Madrid academy he is no stranger to English football having spent half a season loan at QPR in 2008 before moving to Getafe a year later.

His form for the Azulones and Spain’s victorious under-21 European Championship team won him a move to Valencia.

It hasn’t all gone to plan though as he is yet to feature at the Mestalla and now wants a move to the Premier League to secure regular football and a place in the 2012 Olympics side.
