Barcelona are unlikely to allow Cristian Tello to move on loan to Arsenal for the rest of the season - meaning Arsene Wenger will have to look elsewhere to supplement his squad in the next 24 hours.

Arsenal are still negotiating with Schalke over a £37 million move for Julian Draxler and are expected to complete the deal on Friday.

But with injuries to Theo Walcott, who is out for the rest of the season, Aaron Ramsey, who is out for another month and Jack Wilshere, who is doubtful for Sunday's game with an ankle injury, Wenger is keen to make further additions to his squad to shore up a title challenge.
