Arsenal will rekindle their January interest in Yannick Carrasco this summer, but this time all parties are set to be on board with the move, according to reports.

The rumours in January suggested Arsenal wanted to take Carrasco on loan until the end of the season, but Dalian Yifang only wanted a permanent sale, and the player himself was split between the Gunners and AC Milan.

Five months later, and this time it appears everyone is on the same page.

James Olley of the Evening Standard reports that Arsenal will rekindle their interest in Carrasco this summer and have more than enough time to get a deal over the line. He added that he expects the appetite to be there from all parties to complete the transfer.

Meanwhile, whilst initially there appeared to be interest from multiple clubs in Italy, they’re dropping away one by one.

Carrasco’s agent confirmed to Inter-News that there is no interest from Inter Milan, whilst AS Roma and AC Milan have seemingly also pulled out over the financial side of the deal.

Arsenal are clearly the favourites at this stage, and according to a report in the last 24 hours, they’re only a step away from a deal, whatever that means.

With the Chinese Super League operating on a different calendar, Carrasco is currently midway through the season with Dalian Yifang. He’s scored seven goals and assisted two in nine games for the club this campaign, despite very mixed results leaving the side in the bottom half of the table.

In his last half season in Europe, playing for Atletico, Carrasco managed four goals and seven assists in 1,459 minutes on the pitch, an average of one goal contribution every 132 minutes.
