Arsenal Leading the Race for Yannick Carrasco’s Signature


Having problems in concluding Denis Suarez’s transfer from Barcelona, Arsenal reportedly setting their sights on another target, Yannick Carrasco.

The former Atletico Madrid man is currently playing in China for Dalian Yifang, but is keen on returning to Europe again.

Gunners according to report from Sky Sport Italy have shown their interest on taking Carrasco this January and the player also likes that idea.

Arsenal are not the only teams interested in signing the Belgium international as reports also claiming that Manchester United along with AC Milan are also keen on him.

However, Carassco reportedly is leaning more towards Gunners instead of the other two clubs according to Sky.

Getting the winger won’t be cheap as Dalian will want a significant fee for the transfer as they invested quite heavily on him.

Moreover, Carassco himself also has a very high wage in China, another financial issue that any of those interested teams must work on before signing him.

The 25-year-old winger himself is known as a versatile and talented player, who had his break out with Monaco before moving to Atletico Madrid.

Despite doing relatively well with Atleti, on February 26, 2018, he made a move to Dalian Yifang, which surprise many football fans at that time.
