Winger linked with Gunners move
Arsenal are weighing up a fresh move for Yannick Carrasco when the transfer window opens again, reports have claimed.
The Gunners were showing an interest in the 25-year-old in the January transfer window but a deal failed to materialise and he ended up staying in China with Dalian Yifang.
Carrasco has been in China since making the shock move from Atletico Madrid in February last year, but reports linking him with a return to Europe refuse to go away.
The Belgium international is on the wanted list of Italian giants AC Milan, while Manchester United have also been linked in the past, as have the Gunners.
Boss Unai Emery will be looking to make changes to his squad in the summer and the talented wide man is said to be on his list of possible targets.
However, Emery does not have a large transfer budget to work with and the total cost of the deal could be beyond the club.
As well as the fee, Carrasco is said to earn a whopping £8.8million a year in China, wages that would have to be reduced significantly if Arsenal are to get involved.
