Gunners almost finished negotiations with No.10 prolific forward
Gunners almost finished negotiations with Dalian Yifang forward Yannick Carrasco and prepare to make a bid in July when the transfer window opens again. London club have problems in the front-line as Alex Iwobi, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are in terrible form, and they need replacement. Belgium international is the best choice in this situation.
The 25-year-old forward joined Chinese club from Atletico Madrid last February with a €12m deal. He is one of the best wingers in Super League and a key figure for the club. In this campaign, Belgian attacker played ten matches, scored seven goals and provided two assists in all competition.
It is an impressive result, and he can do much more with high-class teammates. Carrasco has contracted with Blue Hawks until 2022, and his release clause is around €25m. He regularly plays in the De Rode Duivels line-up and also helped them to finish the 2018 Mundial in a third position which is already a significant achievement for the attacker.
Probably Yannick will accept the correct offer from Unai Emery. London club had good result in the Premier League as they finished the tournament in a fifth place. Arsenal also reached the Europa League final, but they lost 4-1 against Chelsea and missed the chance to get the Champions League ticket.
English club added several footballers last summer like Sokratis from Borussia Dortmund, Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus, Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient, Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria and Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen. Gunners also signed Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez this January with a loan deal.
