Arsenal fans on Twitter have been looking into potential transfers that their side might get done this month, and according to this article from The Sun, the Gunners could be welcoming Yannick Carrasco to The Emirates as they’re the current front-runners to sign the winger from Chinese Super League side, Dalian Yifang.
Would you take Yannick Carrasco at Arsenal ?

Carrasco left Atletico Madrid last year for China, and at the time a lot of football fans questioned his intentions as he upped stakes and left for Asia. However, one year later he’s been left out of the Belgian national team and he looks set to move back to Europe, where he once so impressed with both Monaco and Atletico Madrid. This time, though, it looks like he could be set to shine in North London.
In the Champions League final of 2016 the Belgian was one of the brightest sparks on the pitch, and he single-handedly took Atletico Madrid all the way to penalties after dragging his side back into the game when he scored the equaliser. However, whilst the 25-year-old has all the ability to thrive in the Premier League, the wages and transfer fee could yet prove to be a stumbling block, especially seeing what sort of figures they deal with in China.

Of course. 25 years old. Great experience at the top level and is better than what we have at this moment in time.
