Alll Arsenal fans were full of hope when we finally got the deal for Denis Suarez over the line and he is now confirmed as coming to Arsenal on loan. We were also very positive about Yannick Carrasco and Ivan Perisic, but according to the Arsenal oracle David Ornstein, those deals are now dead in the water. He explained this morning in an article on the BBC website.
Arsenal look to Christopher Nkunku but Ivan Perisic & Yannick Carrasco deals unlikely By David Ornstein
Arsenal’s attempts to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan or fellow winger Yannick Carrasco of Dalian Yifang look to be over.
However the Gunners are still working on a deal for Paris St-Germain midfielder Christopher Nkunku.
Ornstein went on to tell us that the Carrasco deal fell through after the fallout with Sven Mislintat and the Gunners switched their attention to Ivan Perisic instead. But despite their best efforts to get the Croatian on loan, Inter made it clear that without a permanent deal in the summer Arsenal had no chance of a loan. So it looks like that deal is also dead in the water. And although our last hope is Kwunku, Ornstein reckons that deal is still not guaranteed,, The report continued….
There has been no indication Arsenal will resurrect those moves. They are still trying to sign 21-year-old Nkunku on loan with an option to buy, the same basis on which they have completed the acquisition of another midfielder, Denis Suarez from Barcelona.
So (for a change lol) Arsenal fans are looking at yet another disappointing deadline day. Let’s not get upset, we should be used to it by now!
