Arsenal ready to table bid for Atletico Madrid star – report

Arsenal are interested in signing Yannick Ferreira Carrasco from Atletico Madrid, according to reports

Arsenal are lining up a big-money bid to sign Yannick Ferreira Carrasco from Atletico Madrid – and the Spanish side are willing to listen to offers, according to reports.

The Gunners are widely expected to be one of the busiest teams in the summer transfer window as Arsene Wenger looks to build a side capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

Arsenal have been linked with a move for 22-year-old Belgium international Carrasco in recent weeks.

The Gunners have already signed Granit Xhaka this summer as Wenger bids to bolster his squad at The Emirates.

And now, Italian football expert Emanuele Giulianelli has claimed that Atletico Madrid are willing to listen to offers for the player after Arsenal made an initial enquiry about his availability.
