Scottish giants Rangers are interested in signing Arsenal youngster Jon Toral, according to reports.
Toral is currently on loan with Spanish side Granada but has struggled for game time so far. He is now considering leaving Granada prematurely and Rangers are waiting on the wings to swoop for his services if that happens.
Rangers’ boss Mark Waburton is a big fan of the young playmaker and has made him his priority target this month.
Record Sport are claiming Toral is seriously considering the idea of leaving Granada for Glasgow this winter.
Warburton who worked with the midfielder at Brentford two seasons ago has traveled to Spain to convince the lad to join him at Rangers
The Rangers’ boss is so determined to get Toral this month that he has reportedly enlisted the help of former Gunner Mikel Arteta to help convince the youngster that leaving Granada for Glasgow this winter will be the best decision for his development.
Toral has a strong relationship with Arteta after the pair met at Arsenal.
It remains to be seen what Arsenal’s decision will be but since the essence of sending a player out on loan is to play regularly and Toral isn’t doing that at Granada I think it will be wise for us to recall him and send him out to a club where he will play more regularly.
The 21 year old joined Arsenal from Barcelona’s La Masia in 2011 alongside Bellerin. While the defender has established himself as one of our key players, Toral has been famed out on loan on numerous occasions.
