Jose Reyes says he hopes to draw parent club Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League.
On loan Real Madrid winger Jose Antonio Reyes says he hopes to draw parent club Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League's last 16.
The Spanish midfielder switched to the Bernabeu in a loan-swap deal for Julio Baptista this summer, after failing to settle in North London.
After helping Real to second in Group E behind Lyon, Reyes is excited about the prospect of a trip to the new Emirates Stadium.
"It would be a beautiful game between two teams that play good football," Reyes explained.
"I would really like it. Everyone likes to play at Arsenal's ground."
Madrid manager Fabio Capello might not share his youngster's enthusiasm for the tie however, as The Gunners dumped his Juventus team out of the competition last season en-route to the final.
Despite some shaky domestic form, Arsene Wenger's team finished top of Group G and still represent a tough test for any team in Friday's draw.
