The 22-year-old Villarreal midfielder has been identified as a possible replacement for the departing Welshman
ARSENAL boss Unai Emery wants to raise funs but selling Mohamed Elneny in the January transfer window.
Emery strengthened Arsenal’s midfield options by recruiting Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi in the summer.
The Egyptian joined Arsenal in January 2016 from FC Basel, but has never nailed down a starting place.

A moment of individual brilliance from the star gave Villarreal their first ever win over Real Madrid at Bernabeu in January.
In September Formals opened the scoring against Athletic Bilbao with a dipping volley from 50 yards out.
Emery’s first choice midfield partnership currently sees him pair Granit Xhaka with Torreria.
It remains to be seen what role Formals would play but he’s would likely play further forward than the duo.
“Yesterday he came in with pain and he cannot train yesterday or play today,” Emery said regarding Ozil missing the win over Fulham.
“They are at a big level in the matches and every player wants to play. They’re preparing for that.”
