Arsenal have been put on high alert and could step up their interest of Yannick Carrasco this summer after the Atletico Madrid forward is rumoured to have interest from China.

The Sun claims the Belgium international is closing in on a move to Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang, despite previous links with Premier League clubs.

The forward has started just eight La Liga games this term, but has provided three goals and four assists for his team. Carrasoo was left out of Diego Simeone’s Europa League squad for Atletico’s 1-0 win over Copenhagen.

Mundo Deportivo only last month claimed Arsenal were willing to pay around £44million for Carrasco, while the Sun also mention past interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.

Arsenal forwards Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck have been struggling for form and Wenger could look to bolster his flanks by bringing Carrasco to the Emirates.
