Arsenal add Yannick Carrasco to list of transfer targets

It has been less than ten days since the transfer window was closed but it does not stop the rumours from flying around as if we were still in January.

With clubs concentrating on the second part of their seasons, the scouting services continue their diligent work to make sure the top summer transfer targets have been found and analysed before potential moves at the end of the season.

And as it usually goes with Arsenal, the North London club are being one of the heaviest linked clubs to different players all over Europe and world.

The last in line of the high-profile footballers to be connected to a move to the Emirates is Atletico Madrid forward Yannick Ferreira Carrasco.

According to various reports, Arsenal and Chelsea are believed to be among the Premier League clubs keen to land the reportedly unsettled Belgium, with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain also believed to be eyeing the highly-rated player.

The Sun writes that Carrasco is not feeling too happy at Vicente Calderon and that a summer move away from Atleti is being mooted. The Rojiblancos seem prepared to listen to offers for their player, but are unlikely to let him leave for less than £40 million.

Yannick Carrasco has enjoyed a blistering start to the season with Atletico Madrid, but the decline came hand in hand with his team’s demise over the last couple of weeks and months.

Atletico Madrid forward scored just one goal since October, whereas his overall tally stands at five goals and as many assists.

As a player with excellent movement and impressive technical ability, Yannick Carrasco is seen as a valuable addition for his suitors.
