Arsenal are paying close attention to Yannick Carrasco’s situation at Atletico Madrid. The Gunners are willing to make a €50m (£44.2m) bid in the summer, according to reports in Spain.

The Belgian international has fallen out of favour in Spain. Mundo Deportivo write that Juventus inquired about the player in recent days, alerting Arsenal to a possible move.

The report claims the Gunners say they’d be willing to put €50m on the table this summer. Carrasco’s performance impressed Arsene Wenger when they faced each other a few years ago.

Right now, Arsenal aren’t in dire need of a player like Carrasco. They already have attacking midfield options in the form of Mesut Özil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. This might change over the summer though, especially if the German ends up leaving the club.

This season, the 24-year-old has four goals and six assists in 26 matches. Only half of those appearances were starts, and 10 goal contributions in 13 starts is impressive form for someone who can’t get a run in the team.

Plus, Carrasco would give the Gunners something a bit different. He has an impressive long shot and is a strong dribbler, which aren’t qualities that apply to many other players in the current Arsenal squad. He may well be worth a bid in the summer.
