Tottenham Hotspur could make a controversial move for former Arsenal striker Carlos Vela, according to Fichajes. net.
The Mexican international, currently on the books at La Liga outfit Real Sociedad, failed to make much of an impact during his time at the Emirates Stadium, and left the club on a permanent deal for the 2012/13 season.
The 25-year-old has since gone on to find some of the best form of his career in Spain, and is now being linked with a move to a bigger club, with Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Liverpool showing strong interest in recent times. It has also been suggested that Arsenal have the option to buy Vela back for a reduced fee, but their north London rivals Tottenham could now enter the running for his signature in what would no doubt be a controversial move. Vela has an impressive record of 11 goals and 9 assists in all competitions this season, and would no doubt be a major improvement on some of Spurs’ current attacking options, who have largely disappointed this season despite major investment last summer.
The possible sales of the likes of Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado would help fund a move for Vela, though it remains to be seen if Spurs can sign him ahead of some fierce competition.
