Vela, 22, has struggled to make a significant impact at Arsenal since making his debut for the club in the 2008-09 season. And his future at Emirates Stadium is uncertain following the summer additions of Gervinho from Lille and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Southampton.

Last campaign, he sealed a loan move to West Brom, netting twice in eight Premier League appearances, while French club Lorient have recently been mooted as an interested party in his services.

Vela's agent, Eduardo Hernandez, told Foot Mercato: "We received no call from Lorient. I am in daily contact with Arsenal and nobody told me of such interest. As for the future of Carlos at Arsenal, it is true that we will discuss and study the possibility of going on loan."
