Former Atletico Madrid winger Yannick Ferreira Carrasco 'has been offered to Arsenal' in January, according to renown Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur. The 25-year-old joined Chinese Super League outfit Dalian Yifang in February 2018 and now is ready to part ways with the Chinese side to join the Gunners.
The Belgian international is now on a staggering £ 9million per-year contract with Dalian and considering Arsenal's limited budget Carrasco will have to take a pay cut to make a switch to North London during the winter transfer window.
