Yannick Carrasco agrees to join Arsenal from Atletico Madrid this summer

Carrasco

And, on the back of speculation that Arsenal were ready to reignite their interest in coaxing Carrasco to the Emirates this summer, a major claim this afternoon suggests that the Gunners are closing on a deal for the versatile Belgian.

He added: 'The Premier League is more physical, but there are also a lot of spaces to run into'.

Carrasco, who has spent the previous year and a half at Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang, also believes he would suit playing in the Premier League.

However, less strapped for cash than they were midway through the season, the Gunners have seemingly returned for the Belgian winger and are closer than ever to signing the former Atlético Madrid man.

Carrasco confirmed in an interview with Spanish publication Sport that "negotiations are going well" in regards to a move to north London.

Instead, Emery snapped up Denis Suarez on a six-month loan deal from Barcelona.

Arsenal are wrestling with a reduced transfer budget due to missing out on Champions League football and all eyes will be on whether they are willing to offer the sum Sampdoria want.

'There is now an offer on the table and the negotiations with my agent are progressing well'. He went on to say: 'I am aware that I am an important player for the team but I hope they let me leave. However, the 25-year-old is keen on returning to Europe again, with his family struggling to adapt to life in China.

Speaking earlier this year, he told the Sun: "There was interest from Arsenal and I had a lot of teams in January giving me the chance to go back to Europe, but here the president said it was hard to go then. But my wish now is to return".

Having joined the Rojiblancos in 2015, the Belgian racked up 124 appearances, scoring 23 goals and assisting 17 more, winning a UEFA Europa League trophy.
