Carlos Vela has Barcelona offer in January window LA Galaxy Dos Santos

In an interview with Colombia's W Radio, former Barca academy graduate Jonathan dos Santos, who is an global teammate of Vela's, seemingly confirmed that the 30-year-old has received an offer from the Catalan giants.

The Mexican worldwide managed to outshine Zlatan Ibrahimovic this season, emerging as the biggest soccer star in the MLS.

Despite seemingly turning his back on European football, Vela's impressive form has seen him linked with a move to Barcelona, and Dos Santos believes there is an opportunity for Vela to head to the La Liga champions.

Vela, who turns 31 in March 2020, joined Los Angeles FC from Sociedad in 2018, and has scored 53 goals in 67 appearances for the club since.

"It's true that he has that offer on the table and I honestly don't know what he is going to do", Mexico global Dos Santos, a youth product of Barcelona, told Colombian radio station W Radio.

"It's true that he has an offer on the table", Dos Santos is quoted as saying.

According to Galaxy star Dos Santos, who played at Camp Nou between 2009 and 2014, Barca have reignited their interest in Vela ahead of the January transfer window. I don't know what he's going to do. "Whatever is good for him, I'll be happy". "It is a unique opportunity when Barcelona is looking for you, it is the best team in the world and hopefully, as a Mexican, you can make it". "As a Mexican I hope that it can happen for him".

"Enjoy, learn and then come back home".

Vela came out of Arsenal's academy in 2005 but failed to find a place in Arsene Wenger's senior squad following loan stints at Celta, Salamanca, Osasuna, West Brom and Real Sociedad.

The 30-year-old rose through the youth ranks at Emirates Stadium and stayed with the Gunners until 2012 before undertaking a new challenge at the Anoeta.
