Wenger confirms Arsenal youngster Toral could join Rangers

The midfielder is currently on loan at Granada but the Gunners boss has revealed the Spaniard could switch to Ibrox in a bid to earn more game time

Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal youngster Jon Toral could join Rangers on loan and believes it would be a good move for the midfielder.

Arsenal extend remarkable FA Cup record with victory over Preston

Toral is on loan at Granada from the Premier League giants but has made just five La Liga appearances so far this season, with the 21-year-old an unused substitute against Real Madrid on Saturday.

And therefore the Spaniard could end up switching over to Ibrox in a bid to earn more game time.

Asked if Toral could be joining Rangers, Wenger said: "We work on it to see if it is possible, yes."

Toral came through the Barcelona and Arsenal academies and has had loan stints at Brentford and Birmingham City previously.

Wenger feels a move to Rangers, who are a distant second to Celtic in the Scottish Premiership, would be beneficial for his development.

"Yes, because he has played games there [at Granada] but at the moment he doesn't play and personally I think it would be a good transition for him," the Frenchman said.

Arsenal booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 2-1 win over Preston North End on Saturday.
