Arsenal asked to pay in excess of £25m to complete Carrasco deal (Standard)

  /  autty

Arsenal have reportedly been told they must fork out £25million if they want to sign Yannick Carrasco from Dalian Yifang this summer.

The 25-year-old was first linked with a loan move to Unai Emery's team in January, but his Chinese employers were unwilling to sanction a temporary deal.

Dalian, as in January, won't be letting their star man go cheap, while the Gunners' budget this summer is not huge after failing to reach the Champions League.

And the Evening Standard has reported that the Chinese side are demanding Arsenal must pay a fee in excess of £25m to complete the deal.

The Gunners, however, aren't the only ones interested in signing the Belgium international, with Bayern Munich reportedly also keen on securing his services.
