Yannick Carrasco

Premier League giants Arsenal will need to offload controversial midfielder Mesut Ozil in their quest to sign China-based winger Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco.

Yannick Carrasco plays for Chinese Super League outfit Dalian Yifang at the moment.

Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb revealed that the Gunners can only afford the huge financial salary of the former AS Monaco and Atletico Madrid winger if they can get the wages of Mesut Ozil off the books at Arsenal.

Yannick Carrasco earns at least £170,000 on a weekly basis at the Chinese Super League club.

Mesut Ozil has lost his starting place at Arsenal since Unai Emery took over and reports claim that the Spanish coach has already offered to two Italian clubs namely Juventus and Inter Milan.

Arsenal will find it hard to get Mesut Ozil and his £350,000 weekly wages off the wage bill at the club.

2014 World Cup winner Ozil signed the contract in February 2018 and he still has two-and-a-half years left on the three-year deal that he signed last year.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has dropped Mesut Ozil from his squad on several occasions this season including last weekend’s London Derby clash with West Ham United.

Without the German, Arsenal were beaten 1-0 by their hosts with Declan Rice getting the only goal of the game.

Denis Suarez

North London giants Arsenal have made a breakthrough in their bid to sign Spanish international midfielder Denis Suarez from La Liga giants Barcelona during the ongoing January transfer window.

According to the Daily Express, the Gunners are closing in on a move for the Barcelona star after both parties reached an amicable point over his transfer.

It was revealed that both clubs have agreed for Denis Suarez to join Arsenal on loan for the rest of the season with an obligation to make the deal permanent for £18m when his loan contract ends in the summer.

The Spaniard will reunite with compatriot Unai Emery having played under the Arsenal manager at Sevilla in 2015.

Denis Suarez has been identified as a major transfer target for the Gunners in this transfer window by Unai Emery alongside Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega but will have to pay his €20m release clause rather than a loan deal in the case of the Barcelona midfielder.

Unai Emery is looking to boost his squad with new signings for the second half of the season.

Yannick Carrasco

Experienced Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur has confirmed that North London giants Arsenal have been offered the chance to sign exciting winger Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco.

According to him via the Daily Star, Belgian international attacker Yannick Carrasco has been offered to the Gunners who don’t have the money to sign him.

Terreur further revealed that his wages will also be a problem for the North Londoners.

He earns £160,000 (€180,000) on a weekly basis in China.

Yannick Carrasco is desperate to return to Europe in the current January transfer window after leaving Spanish side Atletico Madrid for Chinese Super League club Yifang Dalian in February 2018.

An Arsenal transfer for Carrasco will be possible on two conditions.

Firstly, he has to take a pay cut on his £160,000 per week salary.

The other condition is that his Chinese club would opt for a loan arrangement with the Gunners for the former AS Roma forward rather than their preference for a permanent deal.

Arsenal have been restricted to possible loan signings this month after it was revealed that the club has no money to spend in this transfer window.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery confirmed the ‘no money’ stance from the club in one of his recent pre-match press conferences.

Arsenal are reportedly prepared to pay midfielder Mesut Ozil to speed up his exit from the club.

Denis Suarez

Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez has emerged as the favorite player to join Arsenal in the current January transfer window.

This is according to bookmakers SkyBet via Football London.

Denis Suarez, 25, is the favourite player to join North London giants Arsenal this month at the odds of 8/13 ahead of China-based forward Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco (9/4), Chelsea centre back Gary Cahill (4/1) and the Barcelona forward duo of Malcom (9/1) and French World Cup winner Ousmane Dembele (12/1).

Spanish international star Denis Suarez has not been able to break into the first XI at Barcelona under the guidance of manager Ernesto Valverde.

He has rarely featured for Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga this season with the majority of his appearances coming in the cup competitions namely the Champions League and the Spanish Copa Del Rey.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is keen to reunite with Denis Suarez whom he worked with at Spanish club Sevilla in 2015.

When asked about a possible transfer for the Spaniard in one of his recent press conferences, Unai Emery said that a deal for him is not close before he added that he’s happy with the crop of players at his disposal.

Arsenal fans have been left disappointed with the inactivity of the club in the January transfer window despite the long-term injuries suffered by important players Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck.

Arsenal have been boosted with the news that they can get one of their transfer targets for £3m.

Colombian international playmaker James Rodriguez has been linked with Arsenal after falling out with Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac at the Allianz Arena.

The 27-year-old is on a two-year loan deal at Bayern Munich from European champions Real Madrid at the moment.

He joined the Bavarian giants at the start of last season and was a regular fixture in the Bayern team that retained their Bundesliga crown at the end of last season under the guidance of veteran manager Jupp Heynckes.

He has had to endure contrasting fortunes this season in comparison to the last campaign.

James Rodriguez is certainly not a favorite of Niko Kovac as the Colombian has struggled to make the same impact from last season under him.

Bayern are willing to let him leave in the current transfer window with six months left on his loan contract with the club.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal can get him for just £3m which is for the remaining period before his loan spell expires.

Bayern Munich were said to have paid £11.5m for the two-year loan with the option to make his transfer permanent for £39.5m.
