Arsenal have been told that a deal to buy Yannick Carrasco this summer will cost them at least £25 million - so should the Gunners continue to pursue the Belgian winger?

Joining Dalian Yifang back in February 2018, the Belgium worldwide has scored 14 goals and assisted teammates 11 times during his stay in China.

But in a recent interview, while speaking about his future, the Belgian winger has again hinted at a return to Europe suggesting that his Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang has lately received an offer.

"The negotiations are progressing very well", he explained.

'From a family point of view, I would rather play in Europe and stay closer to my family'.

The 25-year-old has been heavily linked with the Gunners on a number of occasions in the past and almost made the move to the Premier League in January.

Emiliano Martinez also left the club on loan to English Championship outfit Reading during the winter transfer window.

The 25-year-old moved to Dalian Yifang of the Chinese Super League from Atletico Madrid in February 2018, along with teammate Nicolas Gaitan, the former joining for a fee in the region of €30m. Still, if it turns out they won't let me go.

The lack of options in wide areas in the Arsenal squad is something that needs addressing, though, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette often finding themselves on the wing and away from their natural positions last season.

The youngster isn't expected to feature heavily in Unai Emery's first team next season as he's going to need some time to adjust to life in England but Martinelli could make an appearance during our pre-season friendly at Boreham Wood in early July.

Arsenal have a limited transfer budget after missing out of Champions League football.
