Vela scored the final goal in Saturday's 4-1 win over Bolton.

Vela, the Mexican international, will play the role of secondary striker for Arsenal behind the big boys. It's the perfect role for Vela at this point of his career; low pressure, being groomed under one of the finest coaches of young players on Earth.

Vela scored his first goal of the season in Arsenal's season-ending 4-0 win over Fulham.

The young Mexican striker is expected to have a big say in what El Tri do in South Africa this summer. So much young talent at Arsenal however means Vela could, and maybe should look for work elsewhere this summer.

Vela took the feed from Andrei Arshavin and did the rest of the work himself, putting Arsenal ahead 25 minutes in, as the Gunners knocked Burnley out of the FA Cup Quarterfinals, 3-0 on Sunday.

The future looks bright for the Gunner, with Vela, Bendtner and Arshavin all on board. Vela and Bendtner's emergence may mean the end of Emaanuel Adebayor's days at the Emirates.
