Arsenal have been linked with a move for Atletico Madrid winger Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, according to Spanish publication AS.
The Gunners can expect competition, however, with Manchester United and Chelsea both interested in the 23-year-old.
Carrasco, who has scored 10 goals in 19 games this season, arrived from Monaco last year but reports suggest he has already grown unsettled and manager Diego Simeone may be willing to cash in on the player’s £85m release clause.
Arsenal are currently finding it tough to get Alexis Sanchez to sign an extension to his contract and this leaves Wenger with no choice than to be rooting for his replacement.
Given the antecedent of Carrasco, he’ll make a good signing for us but we know Wenger cannot spend such amount for a player,
