Arsenal transfer news: Yannick Carrasco drops transfer hint to Premier league as the player seeks a move away from China this summer.
Yannick Carrasco has signaled his interest in playing for Arsenal as he wishes to play in the Premier league after admitting that he is ready to move back to Europe.
According to a report by the Sun, the time could be right for him to finally make the move to England – where Arsenal and Manchester United have continued to keep the player on radar.
Arsenal last year came close to hire the services of the Belgium International but the negotiations stalled in the last minute as Carrasco’s Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang decided not to cash in on the former Atletico Madrid winger, blocking Unai Emery’s attempts to get his man.
However, the 25-year-old in an interaction opined that this is the right time to move back to Europe.
“There was interest from Arsenal and I had a lot of teams in January giving me the chance to go back to Europe, but here the president said it was difficult to go then.
“Maybe this summer it is possible. If it is a good thing and I want to go, maybe I can speak with the president.
“I try to do my best because I am a professional for my team, after we can think about a solution. If I have a lot of teams who want me but the president decides I have to stay, I cannot do anything.
The player further talked about his familial reasons, which are propelling him to seek a move back near to his home.
“All that you want is to be close to your family, and to go back to Europe is a good solution. when you are far from your family, and I think I can do good things in the European game, I am thinking it’s a solution if I can go back.”
On the other hand, Unai Emery might be still interested to hire the player as the attacking attributes of Carrasco will further bolster Arsenal’s squad for next season.
However, Arsenal are yet to make any advancements for the player but the North London club seems suitable for the 25-year-old superstar.

No thank you, I despise Perisic people only think he’s good because he has a decent rating on Fifa. Don’t get me wrong Carrasco is alright he just isn’t what we need, but i reckon we’ll end up with him ffs, he’s an Arsenal player at best.
