Arsenal are in “advanced talks” to sign Yannick Carrasco from Dalian Yifang, according to transfer expert, Nicolo Schira.
The Belgium winger is desperate to return to Europe and especially play in the Premier League following a spell in China.
Gunners boss, Unai Emery, was keen on Carrasco in the January transfer window but was put off by the €30m price tag on him.
Instead, Emery snapped up Denis Suarez on a six-month loan deal from Barcelona.
Now, the Spaniard has returned to do a deal for Carrasco as he seeks to beef up his squad ahead of next season.
Schira tweeted on Friday: “#Carrasco wants to return in Europe from Cina and go to #EPL. #Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign him from #DalianYifang.
“He was courted by #Gunners last January, but #Emery opted to sign Denis Suarez on loan, because chinese asked €30M. #transfers #AFC”
