Dalian Yifang winger Yannick Carrasco is closing on a deal with Arsenal.

The former Atletico Madrid winger has been eyed by Unai Emery and Arsenal for a while, with the Gunners expressing an interest in signing him in January before moving for Denis Suarez instead.

But they have moved for him again as they look to improve their side this window and, the 25-year-old said he wanted to return to Europe, says the Daily Mail.

"Negotiations are going well," the Belgium international told Sport. "I am aware that I am an important player for the team but I hope they let me leave.

"From a personal and family point of view, I would like to return to Europe."

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