Cruz Azul want to bring Arsenal striker Carlos Vela back to Mexico.

The Mexico international is coming off his best ever season as a senior player on-loan at Real Sociedad, which cannot afford to sign him permanently.

Diario Vasco says Cruz Azul are in contact with the Vela camp about a return home for the new season.

Vela began his career with Guadalajara before being snapped up by Arsenal after the 2005 U17 World Cup.
