Arsenal are claimed to be lining up a £44 Million summer move for Atletico Madrid’s Yannick Carrasco.
The Gunners have had a huge cloud of doubt over their best players over the past couple of years, with both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez allowing their contracts to run down, and the latter was sold this month prior to what would have been an inevitable free transfer come the summer.
We still have the German international to deal with, and there are claims that he may well agree to extend his stay in North London, but there is also reports that claim we are unwilling to meet his wage demands, putting the deal in jeopardy.
Stories are now emerging to claim that we are eyeing a £44 Million move to bring Carrasco in from Atletico Madrid, with the midfielder having fallen down the pecking order under Diego Simeone this term.
The 24 year-old has supposedly been made available for transfer this month, but no takers have so far come forward to meet the asking price, but Arsene Wenger is believed to be a fan of the winger thanks to his impressive displays against our side for Monaco previously.
We are currently building a new-look attack, and Carrasco could well find himself lining up alongside Henrikh Mkhitaryan behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang come next season, while Alexandre Lacazette is also at the club and will be vying for regular action also.
Would Carrasco be a good fit for our side? Does our interest in him mean we are resigned to losing Ozil for free come the summer?
