Arsenal's alternative winger option not an easy signing

30th January 2019, 16:25 by Simon Barlow

Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco's agent says his client - a reported Arsenal target - could leave China but admits it won't be an easy deal.

Although the Belgium international wants to leave Dalian Yifang and return to Europe, the player is not certain to be allowed to leave the club, who want guarantees over a replacement first.

With time ticking away for Arsenal ahead of Thursday's 11pm deadline, agent Christophe Henrotray says the Chinese club hold the key to pulling off the deal.

"There’s the possibility that Dalian reward his honesty," said Henrotay. "And talk to the clubs interested in him.

"Everything is possible but it seems difficult to do so because it would take decisive and rapid movements by the interested clubs to discuss and strike a deal with his current club.”

Carrasco is wanted by Arsenal as an alternative to Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic, who remains their top target.
