Transfer news: Arsenal reportedly consider loan move for Barcelona winger Cristian Tello
Wenger looking to cover Walcott injury loss
Thursday 30 January 2014
Arsenal are keeping an eye on Barcelona winger Cristian Tello and considering bringing him in on loan, according to reports.
Arsene Wenger will be without Theo Walcott for the remainder of the season after the England man suffered a knee ligament injury and it is thought that he is looking at Tello as a way of providing cover.
Arsenal are currently battling with a number of injuries to key players with Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky all joining Walcott on the sidelines.
Mathieu Flamini must also sit out the next three games after his sending of against Southampton.
With Chelsea and Manchester City breathing down their necks in the title race, Arsenal could do with some reinforcements and it is thought that Wenger sees Tello as one possible option who would inject a bit of pace.
However they would have to agree a deal with Barcelona before the end of the window tomorrow.
