The Gunners are keen to land Barcelona forward Cristian Tello on loan for the rest of the season and are poised to make a bid, after Aaron Ramsey suffered an injury setback.

Earlier this month, we reported that Tello, who is also a transfer target of Liverpool, had ruled out the possibility of leaving the club in January, though he hinted of reconsidering his future in the summer.

Tello whose release clause has bumped to £22m has managed only two league starts this season, and despite his claims of staying put until June, a loan move won’t be too bad an option for him at this moment.

The Telegraph reports today that Arsene Wenger is interested in signing the 22-year-old Tello on loan from Barcelona for the rest of the season to give Arsenal more attacking options.

Tello is a similar type of player to Theo Walcott, who will miss the rest of the season through injury. It remains to be seen whether Barcelona would allow Tello to join any foreign club on loan for the reminder of the season.

Should Arsenal make a move for Cristian Tello?

  1. We are about to be gazumped yet again. Arsenhole, Chitie, Chelski and Spuds have bottomless pits when it comes to the transfer market. How they are getting around the new rules on finance is beyond me excepting that Chitie and Arsenhole fiddled the naming rights deal to get around them.
