Officially Confirmed: Arsenal midfielder has finally returned to the Emirates
It has been already confirmed by La Liga outfit Granada that midfielder Jon Toral has returned to Arsenal after the north London club chose to activate a recall option that was included in youngster’s contract deal.
The 21-year-old starlet was sent on a season-long loan to Granada last summer but has made only six appearances for the Spanish club.
The talented youngster has impressed with Birmingham City last season scoring eight goals in 33 matches – and joined on Arsenal’s summer tour of the far east at the end of the last term.
And now, Granada confirmed in a brief statement today that the 21-year-old ace has returned to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal head coach Arsene Wenger remains a big admirer of the young midfielder and revealed earlier this week that the Gunners are ‘working’ with Scottish club Rangers over a potential move for Jon Toral.
Should Mark Warburton’s men fail to agree a deal for the Spaniard, Arsenal Wenger is happy to keep the young midfielder at Emirates Stadium and could form part of his first-team squad.
Wish Jack Wilshere heavily linked with a departure from the north London club, Toral could be very useful for Arsene Wenger during the reminder of the season.
