Yannick Carrasco to Arsenal is on

The transfer window is a little less than 9 hours before deadline and clubs are still picking paces to sign their targets.

It is no longer news that Arsenal are trying to sign Yannick Carrasco after finally completing a loan move for Denis Suárez from Barcelona this month.

But Gunners are not finished with their business yet, according to Sky Sports correspondent Mark Hughes.

Hughes described the pulling down of the notification concerning Suárez’s move to the Emirates from Barcelona website as “weird”.

Strangely, that has been case with the 25-year-old, however, there are still claims hanging that Gunners will announce the midfielder’s arrival soon enough.

Nonetheless, Gunners have not taken their eyes off target Carrasco, who is more likely to sign for the Gunners, since a deal for Ivan Perisic is a long way off because Inter Milan has refused to allow the winger leave on a temporary basis.

Like dragging a huge carriage, Carrasco’s deal could be as tough as a nut, since it is playing in an Asian side.

Hughes said: “Ivan Perisic is a little bit different because he wants to come to Arsenal but Inter Milan only want to let him go on a permanent deal.

“That also brings in Yannick Carrasco, who is playing in China. We are on deadline day with limited time and there are difficulties in signing someone from Chinese clubs. It can be done but it is a difficult process.”
