Arsenal are very close to Complete First Summer Signing

Share

Arsenal are reportedly closing in on their first signing of the summer, with Belgian worldwide Yannick Carrasco set to join from CSL outfit Dalian Yifang.

And Carrasco has himself confirmed he is negotiating with one club.

The 25-year-old is reportedly keen to leave Super League side Dalian Yifang after struggling to settle in China following his shock move from Atletico Madrid in February 2018 but we couldn't meet his asking price during in the winter window.

"From a family and personal point of view, I would like to return to Europe". He was courted by #Gunners last January, but #Emery opted to sign Denis Suarez on loan because Chinese asked €30M.

Carrasco shot to prominence with Atletico Madrid before sealing a shock move to China a year-and-half ago.

The news comes after Carrasco told Belgian media this week that he has an offer on the table and negotiations with his agent are progressing well as he looks to seal a move back to Europe.

Carrasco is still so young at just 25, and it always felt odd for him to move to China with his career ahead of him, so a return to Europe is a good sign.

Gunners boss Unai Emery will not be given a massive war chest this summer as reports claim there will be around £40 million to spend for recruitments and reinforcements in the summer.

Do you think Carrasco would be a good signing for Arsenal?

The Spaniard's time at Arsenal did not go to plan though as he managed just four league appearances.
