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.
