Jon Toral has confirmed that he will return to Arsenal at the end of the season once his loan spell with Rangers is over.

  • Toral started season at Granada, called back early
  • Made 12 appearances for Rangers since January – scored two & assisted three
  • Will discuss future when he returns to Arsenal
  • Wants first team football

Toral hasn’t had the smoothest of seasons.

The 22-year-old started a loan spell with La Liga club, Granada, at the beginning of the season, but was brought back to north London in January after they failed to give him adequate game time.

He made just six appearances during his half a season there, which was useless for a player needing valuable experience.

Toral was instantly loaned back out, this time to Rangers, who Arsenal have a good working relationship with, and the midfielder saw more football.

So far, he’s made 12 appearances, scored two goals and assisted three since January.

While Rangers’ fans aren’t completely convinced by the Spaniard, Toral insists that he’s learned a lot while on loan in the Scottish Premier League, and hopes to break into the first team once he returns to Arsenal.

“I have another season left at Arsenal so I will go back and it will depend on where they see me, in terms of whether they see me ready for the first team or if they see me doing better with another loan,” he told RangersTV.

“I have to see if they want to give me another contract, so I will wait and talk to them and then we will go from there.”
