Arsenal are now favourites to sign the Belgium international forward Yannick Carrasco.

The 25-year-old surprised many people in January of last year when he moved from Atletico Madrid to Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang. But after a debut season in which he scored seven goals in 25 games he is keen to move back to Europe.

Manchester United were linked at the weekend with a move for Carrasco and AC Milan are also believed to be keen. But reports today have put Arsenal at the head of the queue for his signature. Sky Italia believes that Arsenal have made initial contact with Carrasco’s representatives and that he is interested in the move.

Emery Wants Suarez Move

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is reported to have urged the club to raise the cash to sign Denis Suarez from Barcelona.

The former Manchester City man has been the subject of interest from the Emirates although they are currently looking at an initial loan deal with the option to purchase next summer. Barcelona are digging in their heels. They don’t want Suarez to leave at all but the Spain international has fallen down the pecking order under Ernesto Valverde and is keen to get more first-team football.

Arsenal and Manchester United are keeping tabs on Cruzeiro keeper Gabriel Brazao. The 18-year-old has been watched by Gunners scouts in recent weeks.

Inter Milan and Roma are also interested.
