Yannick Carrasco’s wife has confirmed Arsenal and Manchester United are ‘very interested’ in signing the Belgian international winger, according to the Mirror.
Carrasco came through the youth ranks at Genk and enjoyed impressive spells at Monaco and Atletico Madrid before making a surprise move to Chinese Super League outfit Dalian Yifang last winter.
The 25-year-old has scored 7 goals in his 25 appearances over the past 12 months but Carassco is already agitating for a move back to Europe in order to be closer to his friends and family.
The Belgian attacker’s situation has alerted clubs here in the Premier League with the Metro citing a report from Sky Italia last week that claimed Arsenal and Manchester United are ready to lure Carassco to England with Dalian Yifang hoping to recoup the £26.5m they paid for him a year ago.
Carassco’s wife, Noemie Happart, has now confirmed the English giants are ‘very interested’ in signing the player but insists ‘a lot of clubs’ are in the running for his signature and nothing has been signed just yet.
When asked if Arsenal and Man Utd are looking to sign Carassco, his wife is quoted by the Mirroras saying:
“Yes, they are very interested. I do not hide it, but nothing is signed.” she said on Belgian TV show RTBF on Saturday.
“There are a lot of things going on, he has been called by a lot of clubs,”
“A lot of clubs are interested, nothing concrete, nothing has been signed yet
