Arsenal Keen On Reviving Move For £35m Rated Belgian Winger But Face Fight To Seal Deal

Arsenal are looking to revive a move for Dalian Yifang winger Yannick Carrasco in the summer, according to the Express.

However, it appears the Gunners will have a battle on their hands to land the Belgian with both Inter Milan and AC Milan also keen on signing the Belgian international.

Arsenal tried to recruit Carrasco during the January transfer window but they failed in their attempts to agree a deal with his club.

Dalian were looking for £35m, and it seems likely they will want the same amount in the summer. Whether the Gunners could afford such a figure, it remains to be seen.

There have been reports that the London club will have a limited transfer budget that could hamper any move for Carrasco.

The 25-year-old’s wage could also prove problematic. The winger is reportedly on £8.8m a year (£169,000 a week); a salary which Arsenal are not prepared to match.
