Despite Unai Emery confirming that Arsenal will not be buying any players this winter but the fact remains that we could be bringing in some loan signings, hopefully with a possible purchase in the summer. One of these possibilities is the Belgian winger Yannick Carrasco, who is apparently unhappy playing in China. Now his wife, Noemie Happart, has openly spoken on Belgian TV that her husband is actively looking for a way out.
The Mirror reports this morning….
Carrasco is currently plying his trade in China with Dalian Yifang, but is unhappy in the Far East.
Carrasco is currently back in Belgium, ahead of a training camp in Spain, and his wife has told Belgian TV that they are both very open to interest from the Premier League.
Asked about reports linking the ex-Atletico Madrid winger with United and Arsenal, she added: “Yes, they are very interested. I do not hide it, but nothing is signed.”
She also added that she is keen to return to Europe “to be closer to friends and family”.
Carrasco moved to China with his Belgian team-mate Nicolas Gaitan, but it would appear that the culture shock of moving to China after playing for Monaco and Atletico Madrid was never going to be easy, but despite the difficulties he has scored 7 goals in his 26 appearances in the Far East.
Who thinks he would be a good addition to Arsenal? We could certainly do with a real winger on the books…
