Diego Tristan has received an offer to play for Al Arabi in the Qatari league, according to reports in the Arab press.
The Real Mallorca striker was released by Deportivo La Coruna this summer and could have moved to England.
Sam Allardyce made no secret of his desire to bring the Spaniard to Bolton Wanderers, but Tristan instead opted to stay in Spain, where he signed a one-year deal.
He has six months left on his contract at ONO Estadi, and seeing an enticing opportunity for both the club and player, the Doha side have offered Tristan a move in January.
Tristan has been on the fringe of things in La Liga this season and the chance to play regular first-team football could well prove appealing.
