Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is lining up a summer move for Real Sociedad midfielder Ruben Pardo.
The young Spanish midfielder has been impressing in La Liga for a couple of seasons now, making 27 appearances in the league, scoring three and assisting in nine ocassions.
His performances have since gained plaudits from many around the Spanish game and now Wenger is keen to bring him to England.
The French boss is keen to try and tempt him to now sign a new deal at the Spanish giants and instead make a big move to the Premier League.
However, according to the SportsDirectNews website he has expressed his desire to remain at the Anoeta and sign a new deal.
