Arsenal have reportedly agreed terms with Belgium winger Yannick Carrasco, several new source confirm.

The former Atletico Madrid star, 25, is desperate to quit Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang and fancies playing in the Premier League.

Now Sport Mediaset say Carrasco is close to getting the move to the Emirates that nearly came off for him in January.

And while on international duty, he told Belgian website Nieuwsblad: “There is now an offer on the table and the negotiations with my agent are progressing well.

“I am the most important player in the club, but I hope the chairman understands me.

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

“The adjustment for my family was also difficult over there – my wish now is to return.”

Arsenal are yet to agree a fee with Dalian who are sticking to their £25million valuation.
