Arsenal Transfer News: Bayern Munich plan to capture Arsenal’s target Yannick Carrasco as the Belgian star is set to return to Europe.
Arsenal are targeting to land Yannick Carrasco, who is desiring to return to Europe after a stint with Dalian Yifang in China. It is reported that the Belgian International wants to stay close to his family, and is looking for a move near home.
The German giants are looking forward to sign reinforcements in attack to replace Frank Ribery, who left the club after the final league game of Bayern Munich.
The Bavarians saw Sane as a suitable replacement of Ribery, but Manchester City have denied the offers made by Bayern Munich. Thus, compelling them to look at other prospects.
Since, landing Sane to Allianz Arena seems slim for the Bavarians, the German club have shifted their focus on the Belgian starlet. However, the Gunners are also determined to sign the player, as they seek to bolster their squad ahead of next season.
Unai Emery’s side faced massive disappointment after missing out on the next edition of the Champions league after finishing fifth in the Premier league and losing to Chelsea by 4-1 in the final of Europa league.
Thus, it is upon the Belgian International to decide his destination as he has finalized his departure from China amidst this transfer window.
Further word are still awaited as the player is being massively speculated with top clubs after learning about his return to Europe.

Bayern Munich could turn their attention to Dalian Yifang winger Yannick Carrasco & are willing to pay the €30m asking price due to Manchester City’s reluctance to do business with their #1 target Leroy Sane, while Julian Draxler & Timo Werner are also alternatives.

Appears Bayern Munich have entered the race to sign Carrasco due to high Man Citys demands for Sane. Firstly that means #Arsenal no longer in the race for Carrasco and secondly if Sane was an #Arsenal player, we would have caved in and sold him for peanuts.

Arsenal have been sluggish in meeting Yannick Carrasco's asking price. Bayern Munich is willing to pay it.

Bayern Munich have Yannick Carrasco as part of their ‘Plan B’ in case they cannot complete a move for Leroy Sané.
The Belgian is in very advanced talks with Arsenal.

Arsenal would be looking forward to buy new quality signings next season during this summer transfer window. Further the club will face Boreham Wood in a friendly next month.
