Gunners hope partnership with Real Betis can pave way for youngsters move to the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal are close to agreeing a formal tie-up with La Liga outfit Real Betis and hope to land promising youngster Alvaro Vadillo as a result, reports ArseBlog.
Vadilla has been compared to Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and is widely regarded as one of the hottest prospects in Spain.
The 18-year-old forward has broken into the Betis first team recently and hugely impressed in the 5-1 away demolition of Granada.
The Gunners already have already sent youngster Joel Campbell on loan to Betis, who are keen to keep the striker for another season.
And discussions have reportedly taken place over a more formal agreement between the clubs, which could see other young Gunners like Serge Gnabry and Tomas Eisfeld move to Betis on loan.
Vadillo does however have a €20m release clause which means any move to the Emirates Stadiu remains someway off.
