Transfer: Arsenal battle Man United for Dalian Yifang star

At 25, many will feel Carrasco still has plenty to offer at the highest level and that a move to Asia came far too early in his career.

The 25-year-old made the surprising decision to leave Atletico Madrid for Chinese side Dalian Yifang a year ago, though Belgian newspaper HLN claim he is unhappy and instructed his representatives to make contact with Arsenal.

On January 04, Foot Mercato reported that the Red Devils are interested in signing the winger, who now plays for Chinese Super League club, Dalian Yifang.

Sky Sport Italia, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Gunners are at the front of the queue to sign Carrasco from Chinese Super League outfit Dalian Yifang.

A Belgian football expert does not believe that Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in Yannick Carrasco.

The sticking point for any move could be the wages of the Belgian - he is now earning a reported £170,000 a-week in China, so either Arsenal are going to stump up the same or in excess of that or hope that the player can lower his wage demands to move to the Premier League.

But Sky Sport Italia claim (via 101greatgoals) Arsenal have made initial contact with the Belgian worldwide, who has given his "approval" to the move.

Carrasco has quick-feet and is a pretty useful player to have during the transition as it's hard to stop him when he is driving at the opposition half.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have bigger issues in defence.

"Belgium winger Yannick Carrasco could be a fit for Emery".

Carrasco joined Dalian Yifang for £26.5 million previous year and the Chinese club, who finished 11th in the table last season, will want to recoup that fee.
