Arsenal starlets poised for summer Spanish switch
Arsenal - Wellington Silva and Pedro Botelho in Levante talks

Arsenal duo Wellington Silva and Pedro Botelho have opened talks with Levante over potential loan moves this summer, according to Young Guns.

The Brazilian pair are yet to break into the first team at the Emirates, and have both enjoyed previous spells away from the Gunners in a bid to gain more senior experience.

Wellington, who joined Arsenal in January 2011 from Fluminese, spent four months with at the Ciutat de València last term, but would only make two appearances for Levante after question marks were raised over his dedication.

Botelho, who has already been told that he will not be part of Wenger's plans at Arsenal next season, has enjoyed three successful stints away from north London, and impressed for Levante's new manager Juan Ignacio Martínez last term when he was playing for the Spaniard's then club Cartagena.

Martinez tried to sign the winger permanently in January, according to Young Guns, with Botelho eager to test his skills at the top level in Spain. It could be an important factor if Arsenal are to renew the player's contract, whose current deal expires in two years at the club.

Wenger has a track record of farming out young talent to clubs, with Ryo Miyaichi another player who enjoyed a successful time away from Arsenal whilst at Feyenoord.

The close contacts between Martinez and Arsenal are reported to be a key factor in the possible deal, and both players are likely to benefit further with more first team chances for the Granotes.

(Y) I hope we are able to get BOTH of these young players. Silva really impressed me in the Zaragoza game. He showed a lot of heart and desire, two things we had not seen from him before then. Botelho, though I have only seen him in YouTube videos, seems like he has some speed and a young dynamic with a lot of energy that Levante do not have on the left side of the field. He would learn a LOT from Juanfran if he came. I am sure he would be a good player for us to have to if he played further up on the field as a winger.

I am no yankee :-D Not for the baseball team or the patriotism either ;-)

How I became a Levante supporter is a longer story that I have written a blog about that I will post here, but in brief: my grandfather was from El Cabanyal the same neighborhood in Valencia where Levante is from. He left Spain after the Civil War and came to the United States. I sort of see supporting Levante as reconnecting with my family history and my roots. More details in my blog coming soon!! It will be in Spanish though.

Now I understand your "Levantinismo" as a family legacy Deangranota.
