Jon Toral & Arsenal

Whether Spanish midfielder Jon Toral ever makes the grade at Arsenal seems doubtful.

Now 22, the Spanish midfielder is back with the Gunners following loan spells at Spanish club Granada and Scottish powerhouse Rangers last season.

Toral’s Arsenal career, in fact, has been a series of loan deals. Having come through the Arsenal academy, he’s also spent time at Brentford and Birmingham City.

Off for good

After three years on Arsenal’s books without ever making a first team appearance, Toral now seems set to leave the Gunners for good.

The BBC’s Pat Murphy has taken to social media to report that Derby County are interested in acquiring the midfielder.
