Unai Emery wants to sign a new winger and Yannick Carrasco is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He is a long term admirer of Carrasco and believes he can get the most out of the Belgium international.

According to Teamtalk, “Arsenal are one of several clubs reported to be plotting a January move for Yannick Carrasco. Calciomercato reports that, along with the Gunners, Juventus, Roma, Inter Milan and Napoli are also tracking the player, who will cost in the region of €25m. However, it seems a return to Europe beckons for Carrasco after less than a year in the CSL. Should Arsenal boss Unai Emery follow up his initial interest in the player, then a move to London with Arsenal could prove a strong lure for the player, who can play across the midfield and would offer width and guile to the Arsenal side.”

It will be interesting to see what happens when Arsenal come calling for Yannick Carrasco this winter.
