Arsenal finalising details of Yannick Carrasco deal as Italian reporter reveals agreement

"Arsenal is defining for Carrasco from Dalian Yifang", Schira wrote on Twitter.

NANJING, CHINA - MAY 05: Yannick Carrasco #10 of Dalian Yifang in action during the 8th round match of 2019 Chinese Football Association Super League (CSL) between Jiangsu Suning and Dalian Yifang at Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre on May 5, 2019 in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province of China.

According to a report in the Evening Standard, Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang are hoping to receive more than double the €10.5 million they paid Atletico Madrid for the 25-year-old when they signed him in February 2018.

"From a family point of view, I would rather play in Europe and stay closer to my family".

Having joined the Rojiblancos in 2015, the Belgian racked up 124 appearances, scoring 23 goals and assisting 17 more, winning a UEFA Europa League trophy.

"There is now an offer on the table and the negotiations with my agent are progressing well", he said. "One team is interested in me but I can't say which one and in which league".

But the player won't come cheap as the Belgian Red Devils attacker has a contract with the Chinese side till 2022 and they would certainly look to command a generous fee if they are to let him go. I have no regrets about my transfer to China.

Nonetheless, the winger has attracted interest from some big European clubs, owing to his ever-present global status, and Arsenal seem to have done enough to sign him.

Arsenal attempted to bring the winger to north London during the January transfer window but failed secure a loan move as no funds were available to Unai Emery. The Gunners lack a natural out-and-out winger in their squad, which Emery has been intent on addressing ahead of the next season.
