Arsenal turn attention to former Atletico Madrid star as Denis Suarez deal in doubt

Today, Yannick Carrasco is linked with Arsenal and Man Utd...

Carrasco came through the youth ranks at Genk but made his name during impressive spells at Monaco and Atletico Madrid before making a shock move to Chinese Super League outfit Dalian Yifang last winter.

There is interest in Carrasco from AC Milan but his £170,000-a-week wages could make a move away from China hard.

To this effect, the Gunners manager Unai Emery has been on the lookout for his replacement and he has finally found one, that's according to reports.

Carrasco was one of the best players in last year's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation and has been a longtime target for many Premier League clubs including Chelsea and Manchester United.

Sky Sports news reporter Dharmesh Sheth also spoke of Arsenal's interest in Carrasco during his transfer update today.

The Arsenal boss is a big fan of Carrasco, while he has made no secret of his desire to sign a player to bolster his options out wide, confirming he wanted to recruit 'a winger, right or left, one player can help us in this position'.

But, what makes Carrasco such a sought after winger in European football, is the fact that he is a hard-working attacker, who can press the something that served as a key reason behind his success under Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid.

Carrasco joined Dalian Yifang for £26.5 million a year ago and the Chinese club, who finished 11th in the table last season, will want to recoup that fee. To be honest, he could still get a huge deal.
