Arsenal have expressed interest in Belgian midfielder Yannick Carrasco who is currently plying his trade in China. However, just 12 months after moving to Dalian Yifang he is plotting a route back to European football. With many clubs interested, Arsenal seem the most keen but is Carrasco the right man for Unai Emery at the moment?
3Arsenal simply cannot afford him
There is no disguising the fact that Arsenal are short of a few quid with players such as Mesut Ozil sat on £350,000 week, Alexandre Lacazette on £200,000 a week and Henrikh Mkhitaryan on £140,000 a week. They are strapped for cash and are having to move players off the book to make money for new signings; hence why Aaron Ramsey could be moving to Juventus. Unless they can move specifically Ozil off the books then a move for a new player might happen.
Also with Carrasco’s huge wages in China there is no way Arsenal can match them.
