Arsenal striker Carlos Vela will not leave Arsenal even if many teams are showing interest in the young Mexican.
Speaking to AS, his agent Eduardo Hernandez revealed that Deportivo de La Coruña and other teams have made an approach to sign the 21-year old but in a recent meeting with Arsenal, it was made clear that the player is not for sale.
The Mexican has struggled to secure a regular place at Arsenal under Arsene Wenger but speaking at the end of last season, he explained how injuries were the main reason why he enjoyed very little time on the pitch and is looking forward to the World Cup Finals in order to show what he can do.
With Mexico, the striker has already impressed in friendlies especially against Italy, match in which he scored a very good goal and was a constant threat to the Italian defenders who had three players booked for fouls on him.
On Friday, the Mexicans will kick-off their World Cup campaign, against South Africa, in Johannesburg for their Group A match. France and Uruguay are the other two teams of the group.
The player’s agent explained:
We appreciate the interest of Deportivo in Carlos. They are not the first team to have shown an interest, but we talked recently with Arsenal and we are told that there is no possibility of him going to another club.
