Arsenal face complicated deal for Belgian winger Carrasco

Arsenal face complicated deal for Belgian winger Carrasco

Yannick Carrasco favours a move to Arsenal over Manchester United and the Gunners have already made contact over a potential move this month, according to reports emanating from Italy.

Arsenal have been linked with Carrasco, with Belgian journalist Terreur rubbishing the reports on Tuesday.

But Sky Sport Italia claim (via 101greatgoals) Arsenal have made initial contact with the Belgian worldwide, who has given his "approval" to the move.

There is interest in Carrasco from AC Milan but his £170,000-a-week wages could make a move away from China hard.

Last year, Carrasco surprisingly left Atletico Madrid to join Chinese side Dalian Yifang in a €30m move just months before the World Cup for more game time.

If not, the Trump administration would be accused of abandoning an ally to a grim fate. While the USA military pullout is now officially underway it has made a slow start.

Arsenal have been a mixed bag this season under Unai Emery and although they deserve massive credit for keeping in touch with the top four, the Spaniard still needs to address a lot of problems in the ongoing January transfer window.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi are overburdened with the duty on the wings at the moment, and while Mkhitaryan is out with injury, Iwobi has been inconsistent throughout the season. While it's no secret that a deal for Denis Suarez could be on the table, a move for Carrasco could benefit the side.

The winger now earns 170,000 euros/week at the Chinese Super League side, and will not settle for less.

Manchester United seem keen to sign the winger too, but Arsenal will hope to beat them to his signature by acting quickly.

"Carrasco is now at Chinese club Dalian Yifang having played for Monaco and Atletico Madrid". It has been reported that AC Milan are also monitoring his situation in China.
