According to Nicolo Schira of La Gazzetta dello Sport, he claims Arsenal are in advance talks over two signings the like of Denis Saurez and Yannick Carrasco this winter.
He revealed on Tuesday via Twitter that Arsenal were in advanced talks for both players but he added a twist to it revealing Mesut Ozil will have to leave for Arsenal to complete both signings.
The report claims Özil ‘could be sold’ if Arsenal receives a ‘good offer’. The report adds that Suarez has asked Barcelona to be sold, but there is still no agreement about the method of his transfer.
The Gunners still want a loan with an option-to-buy, whilst Barcelona wants a permanent deal.
Carrasco, currently playing in China with Dalian Yifang, is thought to be looking to leave the club, and his wife revealed at the weekend that Arsenal and other clubs were interested in the 25-year-old.
The report claims Arsenal doesn’t have enough finance to see the deal pull through Carrasco impressed during two-and-a-half years at Atletico Madrid before his move to China last February.
