Arsenal ready to buy back Real Sociedad striker Vela

Arsenal are ready to sign Real Sociedad striker Carlos Vela.

The Sun says Vela is coming back to the Emirates Stadium - for just £3.25million.

He has starred with Real Sociedad since being sold by Arsenal two years ago, and is now valued significantly higher by the Basque club.

But the shrewd Gunners inserted a buy-back clause in the player's deal when selling him to San Sebastian in 2012, and will now exert their right to bring the forward back to England.
