Yannick Carrasco desperate for Europe return amid Arsenal links

Yannick Carrasco is desperate for a return to Europe's top leagues this summer, with Arsenal thought to be in front of the queue for his signature. 

The former Atletico Madrid man moved to Chinese side Dalian Yifang 18 months ago, but now wants a return after a disappointing period in Asia. 

The Gunners have shown interest in the winger and were said to be close to snapping him up in January, only for the deal to fall through. 

"Everyone knows I want to return to Europe. Now it depends on my president and I hope a solution is found. I can’t speak of the (interested) club, but I hope that everything can be sorted," he said as quoted by Metro Sport. 

"I’m not the one who decides. That’s my president. He will decide if he lets me leave or not, but I hope I can return," he added. 

Unai Emery is keen on adding a winger to his side, despite having Henrik Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi on his team. 

Bayern Munich are also said to be keen on the Belgian international but will make a decision if they miss out on their number one target, Manchester City's Leroy Sane.
