Real Zaragoza are chasing Arsenal's Mexican forward Carlos Vela.

Vela's agent Eduardo Hernandez has got a meeting planned next week with Arsenal to check to see whether the 21-year-old fits into Arsene Wenger's long-term plans.

That has alerted Zaragoza to see whether Vela is available in January, although the Spanish club have financial problems and any deal would probably have to be a loan move.
