In the Premier League, Arsenal is one of the highest scoring teams, it’s just defensive solidity that they require. So, it’s pretty clear that defensive reinforcements should be a priority, so guess what, in response Arsenal are chasing wingers instead! According to several reports, the Gunners are in talks with Carrasco’s agent as the Belgian has expressed a strong interest in playing in the Premier League.
The former Atletico man would have to take a pay cut to join the Gunners, but all signs lead to him being willing to do so. On form, Carrasco is a quick, agile and skilful winger that would assimilate seamlessly in the Premier League. He would be a significant upgrade on both Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi combined.
