Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Bayern Munich and Arsenal are both in a competition to sign Yannick Carraso.
The Belgian winger has had an astounding season with Atletico Madrid, scoring 14 goals and providing five assists in 53 games across all competitions.
According to fichajes.net, both sides are ready to pay the Belgian’s outrageous release clause, rumored to be in the range of £86 million.
It was reported two days ago that Bayern are still considering making a swoop for Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez, but are keeping watch over Carrasco as a second option for the Chilean.
Arsenal, for their part, would obviously pursue the winger if Alexis leaves, with Manchester City reportedly the front runners in the race to secure the Chilean’s services.
Carrasco has been a transfer target of many big Premier League clubs before, with Chelsea and Manchester United – as well as Ligue 1 giants PSG – also interested.
The Belgian international had a falling out with manager Diego Simeone earlier this season, prompting Atletico to hold a bar up against all European interest.
