Arsenal and Man Utd reportedly eyeing unsettled Belgium star

Arsenal are again being linked with Belgium international winger Yannick Carrasco.

The Gunners were linked with Carrasco prior to his move to Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang.

He is keen to return to Europe this summer and The Sun say there is interest from Arsenal and Manchester United.

He told the newspaper: “There was interest from Arsenal and I had a lot of teams in January giving me the chance to go back to Europe, but here the president said it was difficult to go then.

“Maybe this summer it is possible. If it is a good thing and I want to go, maybe I can speak with the president.

“I try to do my best because I am a professional for my team, after we can think about a solution. If I have a lot of teams who want me but the president decides I have to stay, I cannot do anything.

“All that you want is to be close to your family, and to go back to Europe is a good solution.

“I’m OK here, the club is good with me, the players and fans also are nice with me.

“But you know, when you are far from your family, and I think I can do good things in the European game, I am thinking it’s a solution if I can go back.”

Arsenal have also been linked with Saint-Etienne defender William Saliba.

The Daily Mirror have picked up on reports in France suggesting that Saliba could be on his way to the Emirates Stadium.
