Arsenal have enquired about the possibility of signing Yannick Carrasco from Atletico Madrid, and his club have lined up Antonio Candreva to replace him.
The 22 year-old is the latest in a long line of Belgian youngsters to emerge from the shadows in recent years, with Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku already becoming household names.
Carrasco could now be set to join the trio in the Premier League, with Arsenal believed to have already made contact with his current club.
The Gunners are claimed to have enquired about the attacking playmaker’s availability, and will be boosted by reports that Atletico are ready to sign Candreva in his place.
The Lazio forward is believed to be unsettled in Serie A, and could be open to a move to the Champions League runners-up.
Carrasco joined the Atleti last summer from Monaco in a £15 Million deal, and quickly became a hit in the Spanish capital. Yannick scored the equaliser in the weekend’s Champions League final in Milan, but it was not enough to help his side lift the trophy. That goal could now be his last in La Liga.
International counter-part Lukaku is also expected to move clubs this summer, but his destination remains unclear, and is also linked with a move to North-London.
The striker is believed to be keen on playing Champions League football, and will be well accustomed to living in London, having played for Chelsea previously.
Any deals for the pair should be lined up quickly, as a truly successful run in the European Championship could not only raise their price-tags, but turn the heads of Real Madrid or Barcelona also.
Should we pull out all the stops for the Belgian duo?
