Arsenal continues to be linked with a lot of new players, as Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger look to bolster his squad ahead of next season. The latest to be linked to the Emirate club is Yannick Carrasco.
According to The Sport Review , the Gunner’s bid for Yannick Carrasco from Spanish giant Atletico Madrid this summer transfer widow could depend on Manchester United’s pursuit of Henrikh Mkhitaryan,.
Arsene Wenger has already moved quickly to add quality player to his midfield options at the Emirates Stadium by securing a deal for Swiss international Granit Xhaka to the club last month.
The Gunners are believed to have submitted a bid of around £19.2m to bring the Atletico star Carrasco to Arsenal.
Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli has told The Sport Review that a deal for Carrasco to move to the Emirates could be back on the cards if Mkhitaryan secures a transfer to Premier league giant Manchester United.
Giulianelli said: “If Mkhitaryan joins Manchester United it [Carrasco to Arsenal] could come back as a likely move.”
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is thought to be on the lookout for two new players as he bids to strengthen his squad following the Gunners’ second place finishes in the English Premier League last season.
