According to Spanish publication Sport.es, Arsenal are preparing a January swoop for Spanish starlet .

The 19-year-old creative midfielder moved from Racing Santander to the in the summer, but has struggled to feature on a regular basis under .

Sergio Canales has only managed to appear 7 times for the Spanish giants this season (5 in domestic competitions, twice in Europe) and even though he signed a six-year deal with the club, the Spanish Under-21 international sits behind a number of stars in the pecking order.

Several reports are now suggesting that is looking to take the young Spaniard, who in 2008 helped Spain’s Under-17 win the UEFA European Football Championship, on a loan deal this winter to enhance the Gunners push for success.

Nonetheless, Real Madrid have made it crystal clear that they are unwilling to let the former Racing Santander talent leave on a permanent deal, as Mourinho envisions a bright future for the young playmaker.

With a star-studded squad, which includes the returning , Canales will no doubt fall even further down the list, and as such, see limited opportunities for the remainder of the season. A temporary move could now be on the cards this winter for the young Spaniard, and reports have short-listed the Emirates as a possible destination for the 19-year-old.

Sergio Canales looks to be a very talented footballer, after watching him take part in the 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship in France earlier in the year. I was very impressed with his precise passing, movement (off and on the ball) as well as his attacking mentality.

There is no doubt that the Spaniard will one day become a world class-act. However, if Arsenal do acquire his services this winter, could he really boost our title hopes? I think this may be stretching it a little. However, I wouldn’t rule out a move for him if I were Wenger, especially if were to depart from the Emirates this January.

Canales wouldn’t be a ‘big-name signing’ by any means. On the other hand, the Spaniard would at least fill the probable void left by the Brazilian for the short-term. He certainly has the technique and flair required to suit Arsenal’s style, it’s now up to Wenger to clinch a deal. Definitely consider Canales this winter Wenger, he might just offer us something for the remainder of the season.

    he wont start if there is no option to buy him from RM!!! No need for a season loan and sending him back after.

    He looks a good player, infact I saw him play against france in the under 19 euro competition and he really controlled that game. He looks promising and I think a loan move would benefit Arsenal, especially if Denilson leaves.

    I think he would be a good addition to the squad, but I think Wenger needs to strengthen the defence and the goal keeper position for us to stand a real chance at the title.
