Yannick Carrasco was a target for Arsenal back in January as the club looked to bring in an out-and-out winger, but the deal fell through. Much like the one for Ivan Perišić of Inter Milan. Manager Unai Emery ended up counting on Denis Suarez, on loan from Barcelona, to help fill the void, but the Spaniard simply wasn’t up to the task.
Arsenal have begun talks with Chinese club Dalian Yifang over the possiblity of signing Yannick Carrasco, according to multiple sources.
Apparently, the negotiations with Inter Milan over Ivan Perišić have broken down with the Serie A side reluctant to allow the winger to leave on loan this month and the Gunners unable to offer a different king of arrangement. With no time to lose, the club have now turned to the former Atletico Madrid man whom they see as a suitable alternative.
