Arsenal are currently being linked to Atletico Madrid winger, Yannick Carrasco, once again.
We were linked with the 23-year-old back in June but his leg fell off as soon as we were even rumoured to be interested. According to reports, he would set us back £19.2m, which is only marginally more than Lucas cost us.
Carrasco is fine now. In fact, he’s scored five goals and assisted two in La Liga this season alone. Blimey.
According to Fichajes, Arsenal, as well as other ‘top European clubs’ have contacted the Spanish team in hope of signing him but the winger is contracted with Atletico until 2022.
Were Arsenal interested?
It’s entirely possible since we were on the look-out for a forward in the summer and he would have cost only a little more than Lucas. However, the injury obviously deterred us straight away if we were.
Also, that doesn’t mean to say that we ARE interested now.
He seems to be doing well though and he’s young but I’m not sure where we’d put him though unless someone’s leaving.
