The 21-year-old's deal expires at the end of the season and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is keen on the Spaniard getting as much game time as possible

Arsenal midfielder Jon Toral will join Rangers on loan until the end of the season after his spell with Spanish side Granada was cut short.

The Spaniard is currently in Glasgow ahead of signing for the Scottish giants where he will undergo a medical tomorrow morning.

Toral's time at Granada, which included just six appearances for the club, was ended after Arsenal activated a recall option in the deal which took him to Spain.

The 21-year-old shone in the Championship last season while on loan at Birmingham where he scored eight goals in 33 appearance, after impressing at Brentford prior to that.

A statement on Granada's website read: "Arsenal Football Club has decided to activate the option they had in the winter to recover Jon Toral, who maintained a link with the Granada CF assignment.

"In this way, the player ceases to belong to Granada from today and undertakes a new football challenge.

"Granada CF wants to wish the best of luck to a player who always defended with absolute professionalism our shield and that was the author of a beautiful goal against Osasuna in Copa del Rey this season."

Toral, who won goal of the season for a brilliant volley against Ipswich last year, sees his contract with the Gunners expiring this summer.
