gunners turn attentions to Yannick Carrasco after pulling the plug on Ivan Perisic deal
ARSENAL have pulled the plug on their attempts to sign Ivan Perisic but will instead target Yannick Carrasco, as indicated by reports.
manager Unai Emery was hoping to get a loan deal over the line for the Inter Milan winger with a view to a lasting move in the summer.
But despite Perisic handing in a transfer request, they are only willing to let him go on a permanent outright deal before Thursday’s deadline.
What’s more, as per Gianluca Di Marzio, it won’t deter Emery from aiming to bolster the left side of his midfield this month.
He will instead turn his attentions to Belgium international Carrasco, who is as of now carrying out his specialty with Chinese side Dalian Yifang.
The former Atletico Madrid man is believed to be unhappy with life in Asia and is desperately hoping for a return to Europe to play over the most recent couple of months of the campaign.
Arsenal wouldn’t be able to match his wages but it is understood he would be willing to play in the Premier League.
Earlier this week, Carrasco’s agent Christophe Henrotay told Football Italia how the player’s family are attempting to adjust to life in China.
